December 20 St. Dominic of Silos

Nowhere do we find Jesus nearer to us and more adapted to our weakness than in Mary, since it was for that reason that He came and dwelt in her. Everywhere else He is the Bread of the strong, the Bread of the Angels, but in Mary He is the Bread of children.

-St. Louis de Montfort

 

O Antiphon

O Key of David,
opening the gates of God’s eternal Kingdom:
come and free the prisoners of darkness!

 

Prayer for Christ’s Triple Coming

Lamb of God, You once came to rid the world of sin; cleanse me now of every stain of sin. Lord, You came to save what was lost; come once again with Your salvific power so that those You redeemed will not be punished. I have come to know You  in faith; may I have unending joy when You come again in glory.

Amen.
