Enlighten Us

bartolomc3a9_esteban_murillo_-_adoration_of_the_magi_-_google_art_projectO Jesus Christ our King,
your sign to the Magi was a bright shining star.
Enlighten us by your grace,
and fill us with all wisdom
and spiritual understanding;
grant this because of your goodness,
Jesus Christ our Lord,
whose kingdom and dominion
endure through all ages.
Amen.
