For a more enriching experience,
go down on your knees to pray or take it one step further
and prostrate yourself (lay face down) on the floor while praying.
Father in Heaven,
make your Love the foundation of my Life.
May my Love for You
in eagerness to do Good for others.
Through the intercession of Jesus Christ,
by His example,
give me courage.
By His teachings,
make me wise,
so that I, like Him,
may burn with Love for Your Divine Word.
Through Jesus Christ's Precious Blood, Most Sacred Name and Most Holy Face. ~Amen
A reading from the Holy Gospel according to John
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 He was in the beginning with God.
3 All things came to be through Him, and without Him nothing came to be. What came to be
4 through Him was Life, and this Life was the Light of the human race;
5 the Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
6 A man named John was sent from God.
7 He came for testimony, to testify to the Light, so that all might believe through him.
8 He was not the Light, but came to testify to the Light.
9 The True Light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world.
10 He was in the world, and the world came to be through him, but the world did not know him.
11 He came to what was his own, but his own people did not accept him.
12 But to those who did accept him he gave power to become children of God, to those who believe in his name,
13 who were born not by natural generation nor by human choice nor by a man's decision but of God.
14 And the Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us, and we saw His glory, the glory as of the Father's only Son, full of Grace and Truth.
15 John testified to Him and cried out, saying, "This was He of whom I said, 'The one who is coming after me ranks ahead of me because He existed before me.'"
16 From His fullness we have all received, grace in place of grace,
17 because while the law was given through Moses, Grace and Truth came through Jesus Christ.
18 No one has ever seen God. The only Son, God, who is at the Father's side, has revealed Him.

Praise to You Lord Jesus Christ
