O Oriens

O Radiant Dawn ,splendour of eternal light, and Sun of justice! come and enlighten them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death.
Symbol: sunrise
It just struck me that this O Antiphon comes on the shortest day of the year, the day the sun reaches it's solstice, and the days begin to lengthen again. Oh, how beautiful to live the liturgical year with our Ancient and Wise Mother Church!
