|Gloria! Window exterior at La Sagrada Familia, Barcelona.|
Almighty God, we joyfully gather before You to worship and honor You with our hearts, souls, and bodies: alleluia! We thank You for watching over us as the night has passed, and raise our spirits toward You, offering all that we are for your service. As we gather around your altar, may we also have joy in each other's presence, and honor the face of Christ reflected in each other. Nourished by Christ's love, send us forth into the world reflecting the light of Jesus into all the corners of our lives. Holy One, send forth your Spirit upon us, we pray, and upon those for whom we pray, especially.
