Prayer for 'night owls'

Our next American Cardinal commended the following prayer from the Spanish Liturgy of the Hours to the WYD pilgrims gathered to pray with him:

Night does not interrupt Your history with man.

The night is the time of salvation.

At night You celebrated the Passover of Your people,

while in darkness there swept the extermination.

At night, three times Samuel heard Your name;

at night were dreams, Your deepest language.

At night, in a manger was born Your Word;

at night they announced Him, the angel and the star.

Night stood witness to Christ in the tomb;

night saw the glory of his Resurrection.

The night is the time of salvation.
