Thought of the Day December 19 Root of Jesse

By 9:31 AM

O Antiphon for December 19

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.

Jesus, you are the flower of Jesse's stump, promised by the prophets to come into the world. You came once. Come now not only into the world, but more especially into my heart in a fresh new way. Come and continue the transformation I need each day so that one day I may be in your presence forever in glory. I was reborn in baptism. Let every day be a new time of spiritual growth for me because of your presence and grace. Come, O Flower of Jesse's stem!
