A Prayer for Meditating on God's Word

On the Cross or Terminal Charm:

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,

As it was in the beginning, is now and will be forever. Amen.

On the Invitatory Bead:

O Lord, you have given us your word for a light to shine upon our path; grant me so to meditate on that word, and to follow its teaching, that I may find in it the light that shines more and more until the perfect day; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

--Adapted from Saint Jerome
