O Wisdom at Mass

The children and I were able to go to Mass this morning where we heard the genealogy of Christ read by the wonderful new pastor. After making it through that 14 + 14 + 14 generational list of names, Father quipped, "Aren't you glad you didn't have to read the Gospel this morning?" The girls were giggling next to me, trying to hold back full scale belly laughs because not only can they say all of those names, but they can sing them, too... from memory! (And were probably doing so in their heads while Father was reading, hence the giggling). I threatened to make them prove it to Father after Mass and the giggles stopped! :)

Here's how we learned all of Matthew's begats and you can too!

BTW... There is a book based on this song as well. Ours came with a CD. I'm not sure if this one does.

Gospel acclamation:
O Wisdom of our God most High, guiding creation with power and love, come to teach us the path of knowledge.

Did you know that the Gospel acclamations will reflect the O Antiphon of the day from now until Christmas? I didn't. I love learning something new at Mass!


  1. That is so COOL and it is unCANny the way you find these resources. Thank you for sharing this song with us; LOVE it.

    (I am clearly moved by the "O" Antiphon spirit, what with my excessive use of emphasis.)

    Oh, and do you realize that just nine short weeks ago TONIGHT, we were having supper together? Sigh.

  2. Oh, Margaret, we found this book a while back at a local Christian store and it came with a CD. The kids love it and always make me play it twice in the car, just because the guy says, "I don't want to sing this twice!"

  3. Oh my goodness, this is awesome! Thanks Charlotte!

  4. I love that song! I actually went to iTunes and ordered the album that is off of- great for advent. I am so glad that you shared.


Thank you for sharing your thoughts and yourself!
