Our Morning Offering – 6 August – Brightness of the Father’s glory

Our Morning Offering – 6 August – Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord

Brightness of the Father’s glory
Transfiguration Hymn
Mount Saint Bernard Abbey
from the Liturgy of the Hours

Brightness of the Father’s glory
Springing from eternal light,
Source of light by light engendered.
Day enlightening every day.

In Your everlasting radiance
Shine upon us, Christ, true sun,
Bringing life to mind and body
Through the Holy Spirit’s pow’r.

Father of unfading glory.
Rich in grace and Strong to save.
Hear our prayers and come to save us,
Keep us far from sinful ways.

Dawn is drawing ever nearer,
Dawn that brings us all we seek,
Son who dwells within the Father,
Father uttering one Word.

Glory be to God the Father.
Glory to His Only Son,
Glory now and through all ages
To the Spirit Advocate.

Brightness of the Father’s Glory uses William Boyce’s tune Halton Holgate with new words by Mount Saint Bernard Abbey.   Mount Saint Bernard Abbey is a Cistercian (Trappist) Monastery in Leicestershire, UK founded in 1835.   In 1998, Nigerian born Cyprian Tansi was beatified by John Paul II.

Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. "For the saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings.
