In this opening prayer for the morning Holy Mass today we are reminded once again that Jesus inherited our human nature and became fully God and man to restore our lost dignity as children of God, that we may be found in the likeness of him. The likeness of Jesus Christ is already in you ….
Almighty ever-living God,
who through your Only Begotten Son
have made us a new creation for yourself,
grant, we pray,
that by your grace we may be found in the likeness of him,
in whom our nature is united to you.
Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God, for ever and ever.
