I LOVE Malcolm Guite’s 7 sonnets representing the 7 Advent prayers, known as the “O Antiphons.” I don’t want this community to miss them! The 1st, addressing His title ‘O Wisdom’ was yesterday: O Sapienta I cannot think unless I have been thought, Nor can I speak unless I have been spoken. I cannot teach except as I am taught, Or break the bread except as I am broken. O Mind behind the mind through which I seek, O Light within the light by which I see, O Word beneath the words with which I speak, O founding, unfound Wisdom, finding me, O sounding Song whose depth is sounding me, O Memory of time, reminding me, My Ground of Being, always grounding me, My Maker’s Bounding Line, defining me, Come, hidden Wisdom, come with all you bring, Come to me now, disguised as everything.
