Father Mark DeMott, CSC
Christ our teacher, your parables enlighten our minds and stir our hearts. Fill our lamps with oil—draw us near to you in prayer. Give us wisdom, the attendant at your throne, that we may always keep watch for your presence in our midst. Open the door to the kingdom of heaven, and draw us into the presence of your Father who, with you and the Holy Spirit, are one God, forever and ever. Amen.
