O Antiphon – 1

O WISDOM, YOU CAME FORTH FROM THE MOUTH OF THE MOST HIGH AND REACHING FROM BEGINNING TO END, YOU ORDERED ALL THINGS MIGHTILY AND SWEETLY.  COME TEACH US THE WAY OF PRUDENCE.   ~~~

“From the mouth of the Most High I came forth, and like mist covered the earth.” Sirach 24:3

Wisdom “reaches from end to end mightily and governs all things well.” Wisdom 8:1

This Antiphon based on Old Testament prefigurements, draws us into the realm of Wisdom personified ~ as the Word come forth from the Father.  John begins his Gospel: “In the beginning, the Word was with God and the Word was God….Through him all things came to be, not one thing had its being but through him.  All that came to be had life in him.” 

Yes, the fulfillment of the FATHER’S PROMISE  ~ Jesus who orders “all things mightily and sweetly.”
