The house is clean (ish), the tree decorated, presents wrapped, food stocks ready for the family who will arrive over the next 3 days. Advent is almost over. Christmas is nearly here, the great celebration of 'God with us', 'Emmanuel'. If you have been busy preparing, why not take 3 - 4 minutes to be still, rest, watch a flickering candle and listen to this beautiful version of 'O Come, O Come Emmanuel'.
For another version of this last of the 'O Antiphons' for use in the 8 days before Christmas Eve see my post last year here.
