Saint Jerome penitent by Matthias Stom (fl. 1615–1649), via Wikimedia Commons
O Lord, you have given us your word
for a lamp to shine upon our path;
Inspire us to meditate on that word
and follow its teaching,
that we may find in it the light that shines
more and more until the perfect day;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
St Jerome, c.347-420, translator of the Latin Vulgate
Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky
as you hold firmly to the word of life.
One thought on “let your word shine”
May God’s Word be hidden in our hearts that we might not sin against Him.
