Ero Cras

And so we have completed the O Antiphons and it is Christmas Eve. But the Antiphons leave us with yet one more message for today....

But first, we must make an acrostic of the first letter of each Latin word in the order in which the Antiphons are given, as follows:



Radix Jesse

Clavis David


Rex Gentium


And then, we spell that word backwards: Erocras, or

Ero Cras.

And then we translate...

"I will be (here) tomorrow."

And He will!

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to thee O Israel!
