Prayer: "The Transfiguration of Jesus" by Pope Francis

Transfigure me, Lord, transfigure me,
but not only me,
Purify also 
all the children of your Father 
who pray to you with me or who have prayed to you 
or who perhaps did not even have a mother 
who helped them babble an Our Father.

Transfigure us, Lord, transfigure us.
If perhaps they know you not or have their doubts 
or even blaspheme you, wipe their face clean 
as Veronica wiped yours; 
draw back the thick cataracts of their eyes 
so that they see you, Lord, as I see you.

Transfigure them, Lord, transfigure them.
