This beautiful service—very different in character from our Christmas Lessons and Carols—is a wonderful way to begin the season of waiting for Christ’s birth. It is built around the seven Great “O” Antiphons that were traditionally sung at Vespers on the seven days prior to Christmas and eventually became the seven stanzas of the familiar Advent hymn “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel.” During the service, music, Scripture readings, and prayers invite us to reflect on each of the antiphons. A new feature this year will be seven gorgeous banners bearing the “O” Antiphon symbols, each carried in procession while its corresponding antiphon is sung.
