O Rex gentium

6th Antiphon O Rex gentium 22 December

O King of the nations, and their Desire,
the cornerstone making us both one:
Come and save the creature whom you have formed from
clay.

God is in Christ, reconciling the world to himself (2 Corinthians 5:19 and Colossians 1:20), and breaking down the ancient hostility between Jew and Gentile, between one nation and another, between one person and another, making of us one building with himself as the cornerstone, one body with himself as the head.
