Friday of the Third Week of Advent

Today the church celebrates Friday of the Third Week of Advent, and the O Antiphon of the day is O Audunai, O Sacred Lord. Let us pray. Grant we pray Almighty God that we who are weighed down from of old, by slavery beneath the yoke of sin, may be set free by the newness of the long-awaited nativity of Your only begotten Son, who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit one God forever and ever. Amen.
