God, You have revealed to all the world the mystery and wonder of Your love through the Incarnation of Jesus, Your Son.
May the light of your Son shine forth in us that we might become a light to the world.
Open our minds and hearts to hear and live Your Word, to love and forgive others, to care for the beautiful world You have given to our care, and to accept all people with dignity and compassion.
We ask this in Christ’s name,
Jesus our Lord and Savior.
