In these Advent and Christmas meditations, Fr Richard Fragomeni, PhD, reflects on lyrics to traditional Advent hymns which calls for the coming of the Divine Messiah
Advent meditations, Advent reflections, reflections on songs, reflections on hymns, O Come Emmanuel, Venez Divin Messie
Father Fragomeni taps our Church’s rich treasure of hymns in a musical approach to Advent meditations. He focuses on a different hymn each week, using a line of the hymn as the basis for each day’s reflection. Hymns include “Venez, Divin Messie,” “On Jordan’s Bank,” and “O Come, O Come Emmanuel.“ For each day of Advent through the Octave of Christmas, Daybreaks provides an opportunity for daily prayer and reflection as we prepare for the celebration of Christ’s birth. Father Fragomeni leads us to understanding the mystery of the Incarnate Word, written by the Divine Poet.
