Saint Cuthbert

Cuthbert and Ælfflaed at Coquet Island

Cuthbert meets Ælfflæd of Whitby on Coquet Island, from Bede’s Life of Cuthbert, 12th century

Almighty God, who didst call thy blessed Saint Cuthbert from following the flock to be a Shepherd and Bishop of souls: Inspire all Bishops and Pastors to tend their flocks after his pattern with gentleness and strength; that thy people may be shepherded with the holy love of our Redeemer Jesus Christ, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

¶ Or this:

O God, who didst call thy blessed Saint Cuthbert from following the flock to be a Shepherd of thy people: Mercifully grant that, as he sought out the erring, even in remote places, so we, caring for the careless and the lost, may, after his example, win souls unto thee; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
