O Oriens

Oriens We had a true Advent sunrise this morning; I hope you saw it.

And if you saw it and "noticed" it, then you prayed at the crack of dawn.

The beautiful rose and blue colors of the sky were a welcome relief from the storm.

While pious Jews traditionally pray toward Jerusalem, and Muslims toward Mecca, Christians have traditionally faced not in the direction of a city, but East.

Our hope comes from the Lord, the Rising Son.

O Rising Sun,
splendour of light eternal and sun of righteousness:
Come and enlighten those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death.
