LORD Jesus Christ, You are the true Light enlightening every soul born into this world.
Help us to realize, this day and every day, that our daily work, if it is done for love of You and in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, will be a supernatural work, and will shine brightly before You for all eternity.
You are the Light of the world, shining in the darkness of our times.
Help us to live in that Light, to make it our own, and to kindle it in the souls of others, increasing the area of light and lessening the darkness in the world.
Then we, too, working for You shall be light-bearers who will help to spread Your kingdom on earth, and increase the number of those who dwell in heaven, the city of eternal light. Amen.
