O Antiphons – December 18

We continue our reflections on the O Antiphons with the Antiphon for this evening…

O Leader of the House of Israel,pp_adonai 18
giver of the Law to Moses on Sinai:
come to rescue us with your mighty power!


Our God is a Father that keeps his promises.  He devoted Himself to the House of Israel. He promised that He will deliver His people from slavery.  After centuries of waiting, the Father had manifested his promise in the gift of His most precious possession, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Second Person of the Most Holy Trinity.

God never said that he would rescue us from disease or death.  He never promised that he would rescue us from suffering and sadness.  He did promise that He will give us a new life.  He did promise that He would show us a way to freedom and love.  He promised that we will flourish if we keep fast to His covenant of life.
