O Lumen

O lumen

O lumen

As Dominicans we sing the O Lumen (the Magnificat Antiphon for the Feast of St Dominic) at the end of Compline every day. The text is below: each St Dominic’s epithets links to a reflection by the student friars on Godzdogz which illuminate Dominican thought and spirituality.

O Lumen Ecclesiae, Doctor veritatis,
Rosa patientiae, Ebur castitatis,
Aquam sapientiae propinasti gratis:
Predicator gratiae, nos iunge beatis

Light of the Church,
Teacher of truth
Rose of patience
Ivory of chastity,
You freely offered
the waters of wisdom.
Preacher of grace,
Unite us with the blessed.
