O Sapienta

O Sapienta -- December 17

Wisdom that comest out of the mouth of the Most High, that reachest from one end to another, and orderest all things mightily and sweetly, come to teach us the way of prudence!

Latin -- O Sapientia, quae ex ore Altissimi prodiisti, attingens a fine usque adfinem, fortiter suaviterque disponens omnia: veni ad docendum nos viam prudentae.


My soul doth magnify the Lord,
and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Savior.
For He hath regarded the humility of His handmaiden.
For behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.
For He that is mighty hath done great things to me,
and holy is His Name.
And His Mercy is from generation unto generations
upon them that fear Him.
He hath shown might in His arm,
He hath scattered the proud in the conceitof their heart.
He hath put down the mighty from their throne,
and hathexalted the humble.
He hath filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich He hath sent empty away.
He hath received Israel, His servant,
being mindful of His mercy.
As Hes poke to our Fathers,
to Abraham and his seed forever.
