Let us begin our prayer with the sign of our faith. +

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew (Matt 11:5ff)

"You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hid. No one after lighting a lamp puts it under the bushel basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven

The Gospel of the Lord.

Heavenly Father, we thank you for the gift of hope that burns as a light in each one of us.  Help us to see this light within us, and to remember that you are the source of this light.  Give us the courage we may need to not only keep this light burning brightly in ourselves, but also to share that light so that it can touch everyone that we meet in our homes, in our schools, and in our communities.

Loving God, we thank you for the light of Christ's love that burns brightly in our hearts. Help us to protect it and share it with great joy so that others may also experience the hope that your light brings. We ask this through Jesus Christ, your Son.


This Canada Health day we pray for the light of wellness and health to shine on all not only from the outside but from our hearts as we care for one another body, mind, and soul.  Good health is part of our baptismal vocation and concerns physical, emotional, social, and spiritual health of our communities, respect for God's creatures and nurturing of the whole earth.

With the hope filled light of the Resurrection shining around us and through us, we move into our day in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
