Last two O Antiphons for Saturday and Sunday, from Sr. Mary Berchmans

"O King of all the nations,
the only joy of every human heart:
O keystone of the mighty arch of man,
COME and save us
whom you have created out of clay!"

Our hearts are made for you, O God, and they will be restless until they rest in you! These words of St. Augustine capture the essence of this O Antiphon. Our mighty God is sending his beloved Son not just to save us but also to lift us up to supernatural heights.

Sr. Mary Berchmans Hannan, V.H.M.
