Fourth Sunday of Advent

Today is the second of the O Antiphons, O Adonai. Just like Moses who approached the burning bush, so we are also invited to approach the divine Savior in the form of a child in the crib, or in the form of the consecrated host, and we adore Him. "Put off your shoes from your feet, for the place where you stand is aholy ground . . . I am who am." "Come with an outstretched arm to redeem us." 

Pour forth, we beseech you, O Lord, your grace into our hearts, that we, to whom the Incarnation of Christ your Son was made known by the message of an Angel, may by his Passion and Cross be brought to the glory of his Resurrection. Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
