Master who loves us, shine Your eternal light in our hearts that we may better know you. Help us to fully understand Your gospel message. Instill in us respect for Your holy commandments, that by overcoming our worldly desires we might live a spiritual life of thoughts and deeds which pleases You. We ask this of You, O Christ our God, for You are the light of our soul and body and You we glorify with Your eternal Father and Your all-holy good and life-giving Spirit now and forever. Amen.
