Prayer To Christ

Jesus Christ, you come to transfigure us and to renew us in the image of God: shine in our darkness.

Jesus Christ, light of our hearts, you know our thirst: lead us to the wellspring of your Gospel.

Jesus Christ, light of the world, you shine on every human being: enable us to discern your presence in each person.

Jesus Christ, friend of the poor: open in us the gates of simplicity so that we can welcome you.

Jesus Christ, gentle and humble of heart: renew in us the spirit of childhood.

Jesus Christ, you send your Church to prepare your path in the world: open for all people the gates of your Kingdom.
