A Prayer

Almighty, ever living God,
shed the light of your glory
on the peoples who are living in the shadow of death,
as you did long ago,
when our Lord Jesus Christ,
the Sun of Justice,
came among us from on high;
who lives and reigns forever and ever.


A Meditation

Put your whole trust in God. Let him be your fear and your love.
