In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Illumine our hearts, O Master who lovest mankind, with the pure light of thy diving knowledge, and open the eyes of our mind to the understanding of thy gospel teachings. Implant in us also the fear of thy blessed commandments, that trampling down all carnal desires, we may enter upon a spiritual manner of living, both thinking and doing such things as are well-pleasing unto thee. For tour art the illumination of our souls and bodies, O Christ our God, and unto thee we ascribe glory, together with thy Father who is from everlasting, and thine all-holy, good, and live-giving Spirit; now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen
