Prayer of the Day

Eternal light, shine into my heart,
Eternal goodness, deliver me from evil,
Eternal power, be my support,
Eternal wisdom, scatter the darkness of my ignorance,
Eternal pity, have mercy upon me,
that with my heart and mind
and soul and strength
I may seek your face
and be brought by your infinite mercy
to your holy presence, through Jesus Christ my Lord.

Alcuin of York (734-804)
