Advent - O Antiphons - O Radix Jesse



O Radix Jesse, qui stas in signum populorum, super quem continebunt reges os suum, quem Gentes deprecabuntur: veni ad liberandum nos, jam noli tardare.

O Root of Jesse, who stand as an ensign to the peoples, at whom kings stand silent and whom the gentiles seek, come and free us, delay no longer!

Some scripture texts worth pondering as we listen to the antiphon are Isaiah 11.1; Isaiah 11.10; Jeremiah 23. 5-6: Micah 5.1; Romans 15. 8-13; Revelation 5.1-5; Revelation 22.16


Reflections:

iBenedictines - O Radix Jesse: hope that does not disappoint
A Seat at the Table - Hail, O greenest branch
Blue Eyed Ennis - O Root of Jesse
A Nun's Life - O Radix Jesse
Fr Z - O Radix Jesse
