The serpent in the desert

Antiphon for the Magnificat, Vespers, Monday of Holy Week:

As Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert, so must the Son of Man be raised up, so that all who believe in him may have eternal life.


All of the Hebrews who looked upon it lived.


All of us who look upon it shall live.

Pax et bonum.
