O WISDOM

COME AND TEACH US YOUR WAY

The beginning of the O Antiphons, December 17



Eternal Wisdom brings delight and satisfaction,
And the wise are filled with joy.
They do not condemn this world,
But seek to heal it.
Wisdom and those who teach Her
Pour out joy, sweetness, and peace into the world,
So that even in times of great trial the wise can say,
My joy is boundless even in the midst of my suffering ( II Corinthians 7:4)
Let Eternal Wisdom be your friend,
For there is “great delight in her friendship” (Wisdom 8:18)
