Saint Anskar, Archbishop of Hamburg, Missionary to Denmark and Sweden

Saint AnskarWe beseech thee, O Lord, to pour thy grace on all who go to other lands, publishing the word of salvation: That, following the patient labours of thy servant Anskar, who carried the message of thy Gospel beyond the sea, they may gather many believers into the fold of thy holy church; through the merits of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.

¶ Or this:

Almighty and Everlasting God, who didst send thy servant Anskar as an apostle to the people of Scandinavia, and didst enable him to lay a firm foundation for their conversion, though he did not see the results of his labours: Keep thy Church from discouragement in the day of small things, knowing that when thou hast begun a good work thou wilt bring it to a fruitful conclusion; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

¶ Or this:

O God, who willest that all men should be saved, and come to the knowledge of the truth: Send forth, we pray thee, labourers into thy harvest that, following the example o thy blessed Saint Anskar, they may preach the Word with boldness and gather many believers into the fold of thy holy Church; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
