Blessed Sunday!
Today’s O Antiphon:OLord

O Lord of Lords
And Leader of the house of Israel
Who appeared to Moses in the bush’s flaming fire,
And gave to him the Law of Sinai
Come stretch out Your mighty hand
to set us free

Note the relationship with the following passage: Revelation 17:14:
They will fight against the Lamb but the Lamb will conquer them, for He is the Lord of Lords
(see also Isaiah 11:4-5, 33:22, Genesis 3, Exodus 3, Exodus 19-20, Deuteronomy 10:17, I Timothy 6:16, Psalm 136:3, Micah 5:2, Matthew 2:6)

was rent,
and scandal
led to flagrant

O holy Lord,
remind me that
my sin
is never private.
It breaks openings
within the realm
of grace,
and others fall.

*see I Kings 12:26-33
