"O Emmanuel, king and lawgiver, desire of the nations, Savior of all people" begins the last of the O Antiphons. Emmanuel means "God is with us." God has been here with us in a way he never was in the days of Isaiah. God sent his son, Jesus, Emmanuel, to be with us physically, to show us the way, to be our light, our key, our Lord, to be the fulfillment of his promise to us.
This last of the O Antiphons brings us to the end of our reflections for the Christmas season. Let's enjoy the music and artwork below for our reflection and prayer today.
I started this website and blog on May 1, 2012. I am a Catholic who has been in ministry for many years. I first developed what I would call a close relationship with Jesus in the early 1970s. Ever since then I have been praying with people for healing and other needs. It is because I have seen so many of these prayers answered that I am so bold as to offer to pray for you individually through this website and phone line.
