David (Psalm 36)

“O Lord, in your light, we see light.”

Reflection:
During the Holy Saturday procession, the Pascal candle is held high amid the darkness while the celebrant intones, “Lumen Christi!” and the people respond, “Deo gratis!”

Prayer:
Lord God, in you there is no darkness. Your light dispels all darkness and you have consecrated us as children of the Light.
