Ask the Pastor

† Theological musings and answers to selected questions by a confessional Lutheran pastor.

Veni, Emmanuel

Today is the traditional completion of the seven-day cycle of singing the “O Antiphons,” upon which the hymn “Oh, Come, Oh, Come, Emmanuel” is based. Aardvark Alley and Cwirla's Blogosphere, in a spirit of holiday cooperation, have completed their own seven-day cycle of posts. Pastor Cwirla opted for devotional writing while the Aardvark gave Latin texts and translations of the antiphons, the original Latin carol, and the English metrical hymn.

Hmm ... what will they do for Lent?
