Confirm our minds, O Lord, in the mysteries of the true faith, set forth with power by thy servant John of Damascus; that we, with him, confessing Jesus to be true God and true Man, and singing the praises of the risen Lord, may, by the power of the resurrection, attain to eternal joy; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for evermore.
Today is the Feast of St John of Damascus. A father of the Eastern Orthodox Church and a Doctor of the Roman Catholic Church, he was a polymath, and defended both the use of icons and the doctrine of the Assumption of Our Lady. Pray for us. pic.twitter.com/dK9RJzQMfj
