Feast of St Edward the Confessor -13th October

Sovereign God,

who set your servant Edward

upon the throne of an earthly kingdom

and inspired him with zeal for the kingdom of heaven:

grant that we may so confess the faith of Christ by word and deed,

that we may, with all your saints, inherit your eternal glory;

through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,

who is alive and reigns with you,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever. Amen.
