A Collect to See God in Christ
Almighty God, who transcends all that we can understand or perceive, help us to see you in the person of Christ, whom you sent, that we would grasp you in your wisdom, humility, and love and desire to follow you as your students and even as your beloved children and friends, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who descended to us and returned to you and the Holy Spirit to reign in glory. Amen.
'Philip said to him, "Lord, show us the Father, and we will be satisfied." Jesus said to him, "Have I been with you all this time, Philip, and you still do not know me? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, 'Show us the Father'?"' - John 14:8-9
