O Antiphons – O Oriens

O_Oriens
Yesterday I had a moment of spontaneous prayer-writing as I prepared the O Clavis David post. The words that came to me were:

We await the dawn, the coming of the Son of Justice, opening the door to lead us out of darkness and into the light!

Today we have the O Antiphon in which that door opens – O Oriens! Or O Rising Sun! This is why I always stand in awe of how the Holy Spirit works. While it was not my intention to connect one day to the next in quite that way, as usual, God has other plans. Better ones than we have.
