O radix Jesse

O flower of Jesse’s stem,
you have been raised up as a sign for all peoples;
kings stand silent in your presence;
the nations bow down in worship before you.
Come, let nothing keep you from coming to our aid.

Read today’s scriptures

Intentions for today We pray that the Church may continue to grow and flower throughout the world. We pray that religion may not divide but unite us, that all who acknowledge God as Creator and Lord may work together for peace.

O come, Thou Root of Jesse’s tree,
An ensign of Thy people be;
Before Thee rulers silent fall;
All peoples on Thy mercy call.
Rejoice! Rejoice!
Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel.

Art by Brother Placid, OSB, from The Church's Year of Grace, Liturgical Press, 1957
