The Great Os - O Wisdom (December 17)

St Hildegarde Scivias manuscript: Wisdom

Today's is O antiphon, traditionally sung at Vespers is O Sapientia.  The text can be translated as:

O Wisdom, that comest out of the mouth of the Most High, that reachest from one end to another, and dost mightily and sweetly order all things; come, to teach us the way of prudence!

Pray then, not just for ourselves, but also that our leaders - secular and ecclesiastical - might be blessed with the gift of wisdom.
