Christmas Novena, Day 6, Dec 21

Christmas Novena, Day 6

Today's O Antiphon is:

O Radiant Dawn,
splendor of eternal light, sun of justice,
come and shine on those who dwell in darkness and
in the shadow of death.

With the winter solstice, the days will be getting longer now, even if only by a minute.
This is a fitting symbol for the coming of Christ, the Light of the World.

"The people who walked in darkness
have seen a great light" (Is 9:2)

"For Wisdom is a reflection of eternal light,
a spotless mirror of the working of God,
and an image of his goodness" (Wis 7:26)
