Every day, we will post a few brief prayers inspired by the Liturgy of the Hours.
O Lord, open my lips. And my mouth shall declare your praise.
Canticle Revelation 15:3-4
Mighty and wonderful are your works, Lord God Almighty! Righteous and true are your ways, O King of the nations! Who would dare refuse yo honor, or the glory due your name, O Lord? Since you alone are holy, all nations shall come and worship in your presence. Your might deeds are clearly seen.
Reading: From a treatise on faith addressed to Peter by St. Fulgentius of Ruspe
Christ is therefore the one who in himself alone embodied all that he knew to be necessary to achieve our redemption. He is at once priest and sacrifice, God and temple. He is the priest through whom we have been reconciled, the sacrifice by which we have been reconciled, the temple in which we have been reconciled, the God with whom we have been reconciled. He alone is priest, sacrifice and temple because he is all these things as God in the form of a servant; but he is not alone as God, for he is this with the Father and the Holy Spirit in the form of God.
The Canticle of Mary
My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord, My spirit rejoices in God, my Savior for he has looked with favor on his lowly servant. From this day all generations will call me blessed: the Almighty has done great things for me, and holy is his Name.
Increase our faith, hope and charity. Lord, hear our prayer! May we bear witness to you. Lord, hear our prayer! Help those in distress. Lord, hear our prayer!
Dear Jesus, Forgive us our sins. May we seek to serve you all our lives and so at last join the saints in praising you, the Father and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
