you will see the King of kings
coming forth from the Father
like a radiant bridegroom
from the bridal chamber.
Antiphon for the Magnificat of Evening Prayer I
Solemnity of Christmas
Brother Max Schmalzl, CSsR
The eternal Word, born of the Father before time began,
today emptied himself for our sake and became man.
Tomorrow we will begin our day with Morning Prayer. The first antiphon sung is a question.
Tell us, shepherds, what have you seen?
Who has appeared on earth?
We have seen a newborn infant and a choir of angels
praising the Lord, alleluia.
