Item Description...
Overview
The ancient traditions of the early Church provide a wealth of material for prayer and meditation in the final days of Advent. During this time of waiting, watching, and preparation we invite God into our lives. One way to pray for God's coming is to use the ancient prayers of the Church combined with a present-day understanding of what Christ's coming means for us. Hasten the Kingdom invites those who wish to recover the meaning of Advent to do so with the ancient O Antiphons-through moments of prayer, silence, and meditation. The "Great Os"-short devotional texts chanted before and after a psalm or canticle-are sung before and after the Magnificat, the Song of Mary, at Vespers from December 16-23. Each of the antiphons welcomes the Messiah and ends with a petition of hope. Hasten the Kingdom is organized in prayer service form for use by individuals or groups. It offers the wisdom of these traditional prayers and readings, along with Sister Winifred's own serene meditations and poems. When used by study groups all members are encouraged to take part by sharing responsibilities for the readings and contributing personal reflections. Sister Winifred offers these meditations based on the O Antiphons, together with their scriptural texts, so that we can move through the last days of Advent with joy and hope.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Advent preparation tied to the official liturgies of the day  Aug 26, 2000
Hasten the Kingdom is a book for the last few days of Advent when the antiphons for the Magnificat of Evening Prayer are the "O antiphons". While the antiphons may not be known to you as "O antiphons" you're sure to know them as the verses to "O come, O come Emmanuel". The format for each day (beginning on December 16) is a musical version of the O antiphon, an open prayer, Scriptural readings, the Magnificat surrounded by the antiphon, the Lord's Prayer, a meditation and a closing prayer.

The entire reflection is long for family use where there are young children. For adults, individually or communally, this is a solid form of Christmas preparation, of hopefilled waiting.
