let the light of your glory shine within us,
and lead us through the darkness of this world to the radiant joy of our eternal home.
Canticle of Mary:
When they saw the star the Magi were filled with
great joy; entering the house, they offered their
gifts to the Lord: gold, frankincense and myrrh.
you blessed Elizabeth Seton with gifts of grace
as wife and mother, educator and foundress,
so that she might spend her life in service to your people.
Through her example and prayers
may we learn to express our love for youin love for our fellow men and women.
