Bathroom Prayer

May all who bathe their bodies here
bathe them in the mild rays of the Sun of suns,
as Mary bathed Christ in the rich milk of Egypt.
The sweetness of Christ be in your mouth as you clean your teeth;
The beauty of Christ be upon your face as you comb your hair;
The love of Christ flow over you as wash your frame.

As you look in a mirror may you see
The hands of Mary washing you,
The hands of angels cleansing you,
The hands of the saints straightening you,
The hands of Jesus restoring you.
