O Virgene

8th Antiphon 24 December O Virgene

O Virgin of Virgins, how shall this be?
For before you was none like you, nor shall there be after:
Daughters of Jerusalem, why do you marvel at me?
That which you behold is a divine mystery.

This eighth antiphon was provided by a Franciscan friend who says her house use it happily. It seems to me appropriate to remember the Theotokos in this way.

These antiphons came from Kenneth Leech via the Magdalen House of the Rivendell Community
