Saint Willibrord after Abraham Bloemaert (1566–1651)

O Lord Jesus Christ, who callest to thee whom thou willest, and sendest them whither thou dost choose: We thank thee for calling thy servant Willibrord to preach the Gospel to the Northern people; and we humbly pray thee to raise up among us those who will go forth to destroy the strongholds of idolatry and build up thy Church in heathen lands; who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.
