Since the early centuries of the church, Christians have sung the “O Antiphons” as part of their evening prayers during final days of Advent.  Each antiphon explores one of the biblical titles of Jesus: Emmanuel (God with us), Rex (King of the Nations), Oriens (Morning Star), Clavis (Key of David), Radix (Root of Jesse), Adonai (Lord), and Sapientia (Wisdom). Make the O Antiphons part of your Advent traditions with The Great O Antiphons: A Coloring Book for Advent from Pelican Printery House

Elizabeth Lemme of Pelican House Printery has created a beautiful Advent devotional and coloring book celebrating these ancient names of Jesus. This 18-page Advent coloring book features two pages for each of the antiphons. The first page provides the English translation of the antiphon with scriptural references which can be read, studied, and prayed over. The second page provides the Latin antiphon with an image inspired by traditional iconography. Each image is surrounded with a hand-drawn border of poinsettias, pine cones, greenery, and a ring of Gregorian chant from the actual notated antiphon.

These antiphons are packed with symbolic meaning and beautiful scripture references, all of which are manifested in the images provided in the coloring book:

  1. "O Sapientia" (O Wisdom), December 17th, icon of Holy Wisdom
  2. "O Adonai," December 18th, is the icon of Moses and the Burning Bush
  3. "O Radix Jesse," (Root of Jesse), December 19th, an icon of the Tree of Jesse
  4. "O Clavis David," (Key of David), December 20th, an icon of the Harrowing of Hell
  5. "O Oriens," (O Morning Star), December 21st, an icon of Our Lady of the Sign
  6. "O Rex Gentium" (O King of the Nations), December 22nd, an icon of Christ the King
  7. "O Emmanuel," December 23rd, a devotional image of the Nativity

At the conclusion of the coloring book, there is a word puzzle game. This ancient acrostic is sure to fascinate youth and adults alike and will enliven this beautiful tradition of the church.

A wonderful activity book for all ages (including adults), the Great O Antiphon Coloring Book is available here as a digital download and can be printed in the ease of your own home, year after year, for personal household use.

All illustrations in this coloring book, including all vine work, ornate capital letters, borders, scrolls, and imagery were original conceived and hand-drawn by the artist at Pelican Printery House using the traditional methods of dip pen and Sumi ink on Bristol Board

What types of shipping services do you offer?

We are thrilled to ship to the US and around the world. We offer Media Mail and Priority Mail via the United States Postal Service and other similar services. All orders are processed in the order they were received. All USPS shipping fees are based on our costs to ship to you and may shift ever-so-slightly from day-to-day, as they update in real time. 

First Class International shipping prices range from $25-$40 USD and depend on the destination. International customers may also be charged an additional tariff fee when retrieving their packages from post offices. We are unable to include it in the cost of your item and shipping currently. We understand international shipping is a bit more expensive. We hope to have more international options as our volume increases, but in the meantime placing a group order with your friends will reduce the international cost and give you a group discount!

How quickly will my order ship?

Digital products are automatically sent by email shortly after you place your order. Physical products are shipped from our warehouse in Waco, TX every weekday afternoon. You'll receive an email with tracking information when your order is shipped.

Can I change my shipping address, email or payment info?

Because our orders ship daily, we may not be able to change your information before your order is processed and shipped. For that reason, please verify your shipping address at checkout before submitting your order. If you find an error, contact us as soon as possible and we will try our hardest to make corrections before the order goes out. We try to check email for any shipping-related updates before printing labels.

What is your return policy?

We do our best to describe and depict each product with great care and detail. For that reason we created the FREE Essentials Workbook to give you a closer look at the design of our planner. The Essentials Workbook will help you evaluate if our product is a good fit for you before you spend any money. You can often purchase digital sample months of the planners to try before you buy. Our planner isn't a perfect fit for everyone, though. We haven't set out to be. It's not possible! That said, let us know if you find an issue and we will do our best to make it right.

If your physical product is damaged or defective, or you receive the wrong product, please contact us with your name, order number, and nature of the issue at hello@sacredordinarydays.com and we will address your concern as quickly as possible.
