Getting on with it...I thought I would jot down my "surprise" plans for celebrating the next seven days of the O Antiphons in anticipation for CHRISTMAS!! Because I stumble upon these things, we started celebrating the O Antiphons a few years back when a friend (MdCL...you know who you are) gave us the Magnificat Advent Companion as a gift. I loved learning about this ancient tradition and what it signifies for the Church even though I had been going over each of them since I was 20. I would do a Christmas Novena with Regnum Christi and the Legionaries of Christ in the days prcedeeding Christmas. I never knew what I was actually saying. Great Titles for Christ, but I didn't know these were the O Antiphons. The catechesis as explained in the Magnificat Advent Companion is wonderful and is a beautiful continuation if you've been doing a Jesse Tree or, in our case, have been in a Good Shepherd Atrium. These next few days bring it all together. Also, the girls have had to learn the Latin in O Come, O Come Emmanuel for their study in Lingua Angelica from Memoria Press. I'm amazed at how much they retain and apply from their Latin studies. Last year, we added the O Antiphons to our Advent Lapbooks. This year I'm excited we'll do a little something on each day. Say a little Prayer it goes well! If you want to know more about the O Antiphons, you can read more here.
