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.
