Advent Antiphons: December 9th

Behold, our Lord will come with power and will enlighten the eyes of his servants.   Cf.  Isaiah 40: 10; 35: 5

Our eyes were not fashioned for darkness.  And it pains them to discover light after a time of deprivation.  There is, therefore, a promise of pain in this prophesy.  “This might hurt a bit,” God says.   His power is a source of pain for all those who have found themselves wrapped in the darkness of sin.

But, indeed He will flood the world with light so that eyes can see, even those that have tried not to see.  His servants welcome the light.  His enemies prefer the darkness.
