Saint Swithun of Winchester

Celtic CrossMost gracious God, who didst glorify the Church by the life and labours of thy holy Bishop Saint Swithun: Send down, we beseech thee, showers of blessing upon thy people, that they may grow in grace, and in the knowledge and love of thee, and of thy Son Jesus Christ, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

¶ Or this:

Grant, O merciful God, that as Saint Swithun served thee and his generation with the devotion of his whole heart: So there may never be lacking in thy Church faithful intercessors, labouring fervently in prayer, that thy just judgments fall not on us, and that our land may yield her increase; through the merits of thy blessed Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.
