Every Advent season, O Come, O Come Emmanuel is sung in parishes throughout the world. Each verse for this hymn is based on one of the O Antiphons, which are rooted in imagery from the Old Testament.

In this free, printable ebook:

  • Join the universal Church in "singing the Os" from Dec. 17 to Dec. 23
  • Ponder the theological reflections on each antiphon, either individually or with a group
  • Prepare your heart during these final Advent days for the coming of Christ

The reflections were written by past and present staff members of the McGrath Institute for Church Life as well as faculty in the Theology Department at the University of Notre Dame.

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to you, O Israel.
