Advent Retreat - Live Compline and Preaching

Sunday, December 13, 2020

News The student brothers invite you to join our Sung Compline and Preaching, following the traditional 'O Antiphons' that mark the last days of Advent. Live-streamed every day from 17th to 23rd December at 20.30.

The last few days of Advent are marked by the traditional 'O Antiphons' sung during the Liturgy of the Hours. Each Antiphon calls on the coming Messiah with one of his titles found in the Prophecy of Isaiah.

Every day at 20.30 from 17th to 23rd December, the Dominican Student Brothers will live-stream their sung Night Prayer (Compline) and take turns to share a brief meditation on each of these Antiphons.

Join this retreat to help you prayerfully prepare for Christmas:

17th. O Sapientia (Br Albert Robertson)
18th. O Adonai (Br Thomas Mannion)
19th. O Radix Jesse (Br John Church)
20th. O Clavis David (Br Bede Mullens)
21st. O Oriens (Br Vincent Antony Löning)
22nd. O Rex Gentium (Br Daniel Rowlands)
23rd. O Emmanuel (Br Pablo Rodríguez Jordá)
