O Clavis David ~ O Key of David (Dec 20th)

O Clavis David, et sceptrum domus Israel; qui aperis, et nemo claudit; claudis, et nemo aperit: veni, et educ vinctum de domo carceris, sedentem in tenebris, et umbra mortis.

O Key of David, and Sceptre of the house of Israel, that openeth and no man shutteth, and shutteth and no man openeth, come to liberate the prisoner from the prison, and them that sit in darkness, and in the shadow of death.




The plans for tonight are the same as last year:
Since this is initially a monastic tradition, and on this night, the monk in charge of the wine cellar would provide a special bottle of wine. We will be having some special drinks with dinner! If I can get to the store we may even have a key lime pie!

I picked up some special sparkling non-alcoholic drinks and a Marie Calendar's Key Lime Pie! There are so many simple treats that you can incorporate into the O Antiphons! Isn't it fun?!?

Okay, time for me to get back to my Cookies... I hope you are all having a great weekend!
