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 the Theology Department at the University of Notre Dame.

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