As the Advent season wraps up, it’s time for the “O Antiphons.” On this episode, hear Bishop talk about these poetic prayers used as Christmas approaches. Each one begins with a different title for the Messiah, and each one proclaims the coming of Christ as the fulfillment of Old Testatment prophecies. As an added bonus, Bishop gives us a sneak peek into the new translation of the “O Antiphons” which are closer to the original Latin.
