O Antiphon – O King of nations come save us
Jesus the Christ enters the antiphons directly as the one who is King and Desired of all. He will bind God’s people Israel with the Gentile world. The foundation of this union is Christ as the cornerstone.
Speaking eloquently to both Jewish and Gentile Christians, St. Paul uses the cornerstone image in the letter to the Ephesians. He writes: “You are part of a building that has the apostles and prophets for its foundation and Christ Jesus himself for its cornerstone.”
What can you do to continue to build this holy temple? How do you help to heal the divisions that exist in our world both between different faith traditions and also among those of the same faith community who are at variance with one another?
O King of the Gentiles and the Desired of all, you are the cornerstone that binds two into one. Come and save us whom you fashioned out of clay.
