The Light of the World

Adoration of the Child by Gerard van Honthorst

Adoration of the Child by Gerard van Honthorst

Grant, we pray, almighty God,
that, as we are bathed in the new radiance of your incarnate Word,
the light of faith, which illumines our minds,
may also shine through in our deeds.
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.

                                          – Collect for Christmas Mass at Dawn, Roman Missal

How fervently do we pray that the light of faith would bear fruit in our lives, spurring us on to love our neighbor as ourselves?
