From the 17th of December until Christmas Eve, the Church’s observance of Advent enters into an intense period of prayerful expectation for the coming of the Lord. This is reflected in the Church’s Great O Antiphons which are appointed to be recited at the Magnificat during Evensong/Vespers. And so today, O Sapientia :

O SAPIENTIA, quae exore Altissimi prodisti, attingens a fine usque ad finem, fortiter suaviter disponensque omnia: veni ad docendum nos viam prudentiae.

O WISDOM, which camest out of the mouth of the most High, and reachest from one end to another, mightily, and sweetly ordering all things: Come and teach us the way of prudence.
