Star of Wonder, Radiant Goodness,

Today I turn to you as the Source of Love.

I remember your light dwelling within me.

Keep me mindful of your transforming presence.

Shine this goodness lovingly on each person

With whom I come in contact this day.

Draw me to your irresistible love.

I open my whole being to you.

I send your love forth into our world.

May all those who suffer find solace in you.

May all of creation know your peace.”
