If you have ever wondered about the beautiful tradition of O Antiphons, Sister Mary Catherine Fodrocy, OP  has prepared a program especially for you. “O Antiphons: The Tradition and Significance” of the 7 Nights of Prayer is at Dominican Center Saturday, Dec. 7, 9:00-11:30am.

The O Antiphons are short, Scripture-based Advent prayers from the Middle Ages that are part of the prayer of the Church in the Liturgy of the Hours. They address Jesus using titles from various prophecies before His birth.

Advent calls us to prepare, listen, and pray with intention. Study with us — and your prayer can be enriched by understanding the origin and history of the tradition, the meaning of the titles we use for Jesus, and the relevance of the messages for our lives and the world now.
