O Oriens

December 21

Symbols: Sun with Rays

Come, and shine on those seated in darkness, and in the shadow of death.

O Rising Dawn (Zac 6: 12), Radiance of the Light eternal (Hab 3: 4) and Sun of Justice (Mal 3: 20); Come, enlighten those who sit in darkness & the shadow of death (Ps 107: 10; Lk 1: 78).

Just as the natural sun gives light and life to all upon whom its rays fall, so Christ, the Rising Dawn, dispels darkness and brings eternal life and light.

Recommended Readings: Malachias 4:2-6
