Father, you sent the Holy Spirit to enlighten the hearts of men; hear us as we pray:
– Enlighten your people, Lord.

Blessed are you, O God, our light,
you have given us a new day resplendent with your glory.

– Enlighten your people, Lord.

You enlightened the world through the resurrection of your Son,
through your Church shed this light on all men.
– Enlighten your people, Lord.

You gave the disciples of your only-begotten Son the Spirit’s gift of understanding,
through the same Spirit keep the Church faithful to you.
– Enlighten your people, Lord.

Light of nations, remember those who remain in darkness,
open their eyes and let them recognize you, the only true God.
– Enlighten your people, Lord.

Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done on earth,
as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.

Concluding Prayer

O God,
by whom we are redeemed and receive adoption,
look graciously upon your beloved sons and daughters,
that those who believe in Christ may receive
true freedom and an everlasting inheritance.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
– Amen.

DISMISSAL

May the Lord bless us,
protect us from all evil and bring us to everlasting life.
– Amen.
