Father, You revealed Your Son to the nations by the guidance of a star. Lead me to Your glory in Heaven by the light of faith. Amen.

Audio of daily prayer read by Fr. Uribe OMI

Luke 1:67-79

Zechariah his father, filled with the Holy Spirit, prophesied, saying:
“Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel;
for he has come to his people and set them free.
He has raised up for us a mighty Savior,
born of the house of his servant David.
Through his prophets he promised of old
that he would save us from our enemies,
from the hands of all who hate us.
He promised to show mercy to our fathers
and to remember his holy covenant.
This was the oath he swore to our father Abraham:
to set us free from the hand of our enemies,
free to worship him without fear,
holy and righteous in his sight
all the days of our life.
You, my child, shall be called the prophet of the Most High,
for you will go before the Lord to prepare his way,
to give his people knowledge of salvation
by the forgiveness of their sins.
In the tender compassion of our God
the dawn from on high shall break upon us,
to shine on those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death,
and to guide our feet into the way of peace.”

Padre, Tú revelaste a Tu Hijo a las naciones mediante la guía de una estrella. Condúceme a Tu gloria en el Cielo por la luz de la fe. Amén.

Audio de la oración diaira leída por el p. Uribe, OMI 

Lc 1, 67-79
En aquel tiempo, Zacarías, padre de Juan, lleno del Espíritu Santo, profetizó diciendo:
“Bendito sea el Señor, Dios de Israel,
porque ha visitado y redimido a su pueblo,
y ha hecho surgir en favor nuestro
un poderoso salvador en la casa de David, su siervo.
Así lo había anunciado desde antiguo,
por boca de sus santos profetas:
que nos salvaría de nuestros enemigos
y de las manos de todos los que nos odian,
para mostrar su misericordia a nuestros padres,
acordándose de su santa alianza.
El Señor juró a nuestro padre Abraham
concedernos que, libres ya de nuestros enemigos,
lo sirvamos sin temor, en santidad y justicia
delante de él, todos los días de nuestra vida.
Y a ti, niño, te llamarán profeta del Altísimo,
porque irás delante del Señor a preparar sus caminos
y a anunciar a su pueblo la salvación,
mediante el perdón de los pecados.
Por la entrañable misericordia de nuestro Dios,
nos visitará el sol que nace de lo alto
para iluminar a los que viven en tinieblas y en sombras de muerte,
para guiar nuestros pasos por el camino de la paz’’.
