May the Light of Dawn Illuminate Our Hearts

The “Collect” is a prayer that is said at the beginning of a Eucharistic Liturgy (Mass), and is meant to be a gathering prayer.  The following is the Collect in today’s Advent liturgy.

May the splendor of your glory dawn in our hearts, we pray, Almighty God, that all shadows of the night may be scattered and we may be shown to be children of light by the advent of your Only Begotten Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, One God forever and ever.

May the light of dawn illuminate our hearts

      You are welcome. May we remember the power of the Light when we cannot find the way.
