God called you out of darkness,
into His wonderful light.
May you experience His kindness and blessings,
and be strong in faith, in hope, and in love.
Because you are followers of Christ,
who appeared on this day as a light shining in darkness
may He make you a light to all your sisters and brothers.
The wise men followed the star,
and found Christ who is light from light.
May you too find the Lord
when your pilgrimage is ended.
May almighty God bless you,
the Father, and the Son, + and the Holy Spirit.
