Enlighten our minds - Epiphany Prayer
A special sermon on the Holy Epiphany that focuses on the Sedro Prayer appointed for Epiphany.
Fr John Brian takes this opportunity to talk about the importance of the words and the teachings from these ancient prayers to help and aid us in our spiritual development.
from the "Madedono: The Book of Church Festivals" (English 1984)
"Do You, even now, O Lord, Who have brought us to this hour, be with us and among us by driving away from our souls all the darkness of ignorance."
"Enlighten our minds by the rays of Your light, that we may be worthy to become children of light."
