2005: Pope Benedict’s XVI’s encyclical Deus Cartias Est (‘God is Love’)

25 December 2022 All day

Prayer of Pope Benedict from Deus Caritas Est

Holy Mary, Mother of God, 
you have given the world its true light,
Jesus, your Son - the Son of God.
You abandoned yourself completely,
to God's call
and thus became a wellspring
of the goodness which flows forth from him.
Show us Jesus. Lead us to him.
Teach us to know and love him,
so that we too can become
capable of true love
and be fountains of living water
in the midst of a thirsty world.

Benedict XVI, Caritas Deus Est, n 42
