Advent Calendar: Roman Angels 22

Angels above the Holy Water Font
Oratorio San Francesco Severio "del Caravita"

O Rex Gentium, et desideratus earum,
lapisque angularis, qui facis utraque unum:
veni, et salva hominem,
quem de limo formasti.

O King of the nations, and their desire,
the cornerstone making both one:
Come and save the human race,
which you fashioned from clay.

O Antiphon for December 22
