Comments: O Adonai

Thank you for this mornings message. Our history rooted in the Jewish history.Each day as we pray the psalms, and read the Old Testament.

The story of the soldier/ordinand is salutary to us all. So easy just to see the outside, and never take the trouble to listen to the inner person. I remember well my time as a chaplain to a psychiatric hospital in Wiltshire, and listening to the story behind the person I was with. There but for the Grace of God go any of us.

Sometimes the story of the person came to be revealed by the listening domestic worker on the ward. God has His ways.

I love the Advent Antiphons and it is such a shame that they are not more used both in their place surrounding the Magnificat at Evensong and as the subject of devotion, prayer and teaching.
Thank you for this reflection.

The O Antiphons always inspire me - thanks for these reflections.
