Morning Collect: Jerome

O Lord, O God of truth,
your Word is a lantern to our feet
and a light upon our path:
We give you thanks for your servant Jerome,
and those who, following in his steps, have labored
to render the Holy Scriptures in the language of the people;
and we pray that your Holy Spirit will overshadow us
as we read the written Word,
and that Christ, the living Word,
will transform us according to your righteous will;
through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
