Drawing Closer to the Mother of God During Advent, Part 3
As she continues her exploration of Spiritual Writers on the topic of the Mother of God, Veronica begins to transition her reflection from Mary to the Birth of the Word of God with the hauntingly beautiful melody and words of the hymn “O Come, O Come Emmanuel.” She shares passages from a number of Saints–St. Nikolai Velomirovic, St. Gregory of Nyssa, and St. Romanus–as we put the final touches on our study of the virtuous life of Mary and her/our preparation for the coming of the Messiah…. O come, O come Emmanuel.
