Christ the Lord is our day and our sunlight, shining on all men and never setting. Let us praise him, saying:
- O Lord, you are our life and our salvation!
Creator of the stars, we offer you in gratitude the first-fruits of this day, and we commemorate your resurrection.
May your Spirit guide us today to do what is pleasing to you: may your Wisdom lead us always.
Let us join together with joy at Mass this Sunday, at the table of your word and your Body and Blood.
Our souls give you thanks for your immeasurable kindness.
from the Liturgy of the Hours
