Our Morning Offering – 22 April – Thursay of the Third Week of Easter
As today is the Memorial of St Leonides, Martyr for Christ,
Origen’s Father, let us pray his son’s words:
May the Lord Jesus Touch Our Eyes
By Origen (c 185-253)
Father of the Church
May the Lord Jesus touch our eyes,
as He did those of the blind.
Then we shall begin to see in visible things
those which are invisible.
May He open our eyes to gaze,
not on present realities
but on the blessings to come.
May He open the eyes of our heart,
to contemplate God in Spirit,
through Jesus Christ the Lord,
to Whom belong,
all power and glory,
through all eternity.
