Awaiting Emmanuel: On the “O Antiphons” of Advent
with the Emmaus Institute for Biblical Studies
The retreat includes Masses and Confessions, Adoration and Devotions, and five conferences:
Friday evening—introduction and invitation to meeting Jesus in the “O” Antiphons (Team)
Saturday morning—Antiphons 1 & 2 (Vern Steiner)
Saturday afternoon—Antiphons 3 & 4 (Joshua Burks)
Saturday evening—Antiphons 5 & 6 (Chad Steiner)
Sunday morning—Antiphon 7 (Vern Steiner)
The reflections will focus on:
- the Antiphon itself
- a brief biblical development of the theme from the Old Testament, especially Isaiah
- an explanation of how Jesus is the fulfillment/incarnation/embodiment of the Antiphon
- a strong emphasis on how this applies today, where and how it is to be a reality in our lives
