Fourth Sunday of Advent: O Radiant Dawn (O Oriens)

Darkness before the dawn

O Oriens (O Radiant Dawn) is one of the seven O Antiphons sung or recited at Vespers. In English, it goes: O Radiant Dawn, splendor of eternal light, sun of justice: come, shine on those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death. On this, the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year in the northern hemisphere, fill your heart with anticipation for the coming light of Christ.

Today’s readings: 2 Samuel 7:1-5, 8b-12, 14a, 16; Romans 16:25-27; Luke 1:26-38 (11). “He will be great and will be called Son of the Most High.”

We are a
Catholic Community
located on the
North side of
Lakeland, Florida.

In the words of Pope Benedict XVI who says, "the Holy Spirit rebuilds the bridge of true communication between heaven and earth," we at St. Anthony Catholic Church are here to help each other cross that bridge. We are a missionary church, Catholic in nature, called to be missionaries to the world and one another.

The Second Vatican Council clearly states that people are the church. More so than any building, program, or even teaching, the church witnesses the presence of Christ to the world through its people. Saint Anthony Catholic Church is abundantly blessed in this regard.
