Saint Ninian, Bishop in Galloway

Saint Ninian

Saint Ninian preaching to the Picts (from the Book of the Hours of the Virgin and Saint Ninian)

O God, who by the preaching of thy blessed servant Saint Ninian, didst cause the light of the Gospel to shine in the British Isles: Lead us by its brightness to become sons of a new birth, growing into thine image from glory to glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

¶ Or this:

O God, the Light of the world, who of old didst build up many a fortress of the faith to serve as a stronghold in the gloom of heathenism, and a light–house diffusing learning and piety: Inspire within our schools and colleges a challenge to the false and a witness to the true; and in our time send forth judgement unto victory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
