A Prayer on the Feast of the Theophany of Christ

O CHRIST, the true light that lighteth and halloweth every man that cometh into the world (Jn 1:9), let the light of thy countenance be signed upon us (Ps 4:6 LXX), that in it we might see the light unapproachable (1 Tim 6:16), and direct our steps to the doing of thy commandments (cf. Ps 118[119]:5), at the intercessions of thy wholly undefiled Mother, and of all thy saints. Amen.
