Prayer: Pope Damasus I

O Christ, your names are manifold:

Lord, because you are Spirit;
Word, because you are God;
Son, because you are the only-begotten of the Father;
Shepherd, because you are a guardian;
Way, because there is a straight path through you to life;
Lamb, because you suffered;
Cornerstone, because instruction is yours;
Teacher, because you demonstrate how to live;
Truth, because you are from the Father;
Samaritan, because you are the merciful protector;
Vine, because we are redeemed by your blood;
Prophet, because you have revealed what is to come.
