"O Antiphons" Countdown to Christmas

These are the last seven days of Advent, the 'great ferias,' and each of them gets its own "O Antiphon". Each of the antiphons provide another name for Christ who is to come.

These are the "O"s for the first two days (got into this a little late, obviously.)

Note the first letter of the appelations (Sapientia, Adonai) When all of them are published here, if you take the first letters and create an acrostic in REVERSE order, they form Ero cras, Latin for "I Shall Come," or "I Will Be."

Let us pray--that these will serve as an antidote to the nausea you all experienced when reading the post below!
