O Adonai
O My !

O Root of Jesse

Root  The Incarnation, with both its historical and transhistorical importance, takes place in history, in a particular place and time, to Mary and Joseph. The genealogy of Jesus celebrates the Messiah's historicity, yet emphasizes his origins as God.

The Christmas proclamation at just before midnight mass is such a beautiful proclamation of this truth as well.

Jesus is not a myth, an ideal, or a symbol, he is True-God/True-Man.

O Root of Jesse, standing as a sign among the peoples;
before you kings will shut their mouths,
to you the nations will make their prayer:
Come and deliver us, and delay no longer.
