The O Antiphons

Today the O Antiphons begin with 'O Sapientia' or, in English, 'O Wisdom'.
O Uncreated Wisdom that proceedest from the mouth of the Most High, reaching from end to end mightily, and disposing all things sweetly! Come and teach us the way of prudence.
Sirach 24:2
Wisdom 8:1
Symbols: oil lamp, open book.

A good way to introduce your children to the O Antiphons is by singing O Come, O Come, Emmanuel and by building an O Antiphon House. Here is mine, as we come to the O Antiphon of the day, one of the children turns the block around, like an Advent calendar window or Jesse Tree.
