Our Morning Offering – 10 January – Feast of the Baptism of the Lord
O Christ, our Master and God
St Basil the Great (329-379)
Father and Doctor of the Church
O Christ, our Master and God,
King of the ages and Creator of all,
I thank You for all the Good things
that You have given to me
and for the reception of Your most pure
and life-giving Mysteries.
I pray You, therefore, O good Lover of mankind,
keep me under Your protection
in the shadow of Your wings.
Grant that with a pure conscience,
until my last breath,
I may worthily partake of Your Holy Things,
for the forgiveness of sins
and for life everlasting.
For You are the bread of Life,
the Fountain of holiness
and the Bestower of blessings
and to You, we give glory
together with the Father and the Holy Spirit,
now nad forever and ever.
