O God, through the loving obedience of the Blessed Virgin Mary, you sent your only Son into the world to light the way to life. Illumine those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death so that they may rejoice in the approaching celebration of his coming, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever. Amen
Prayer from Magnificat—U.S. Edition, Mass Collect, Saturday, December 11, 2021.
