Taking Away Darkness

A sconce lights up St. John's Chapel at St. Michael's Cathedral.

Hail Mary, hope of Christians…

…I entreat you, deliver me from the burden of my sins, take away the darkness of my mind, destroy the earthly affections of my heart, defeat the temptations of my enemies, and rule all the actions of my life so that with you as guide I may arrive at the eternal happiness of heaven.  
                             - St. John Damascene
