The Feast of Saint John

Today is the feast of Saint John, Apostle and Evangelist, and the patron saint of our Church. Six at the mass this morning – more, of course, would be nice, but we all enjoyed it.

Merciful Lord,
cast your bright beams of light upon the Church:
that, being enlightened by the teaching
of your blessed apostle and evangelist Saint John,
we may so walk in the light of your truth
that we may at last attain to the light of everlasting life;
through Jesus Christ your incarnate Son our Lord.
