Saint Etheldreda, Queen and Abbess of Ely

St Æthelthryth (Etheldreda)

Saint Æthelthryth (Etheldreda) of Ely from the Benedictional of St. Æthelwold

O God, who didst call thy servant Queen Etheldreda to an earthly throne that she might advance thy heavenly kingdom: Mercifully grant that we who commemorate her faith may be fruitful in good works, and attain to the crown of peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

¶ Or this:

Almighty and everlasting god, who didst enkindle the flame of love in the heart of Saint Etheldreda, thy servant, so that, at thy call, she gave up the old life for the new: Grant us the same faith and power of love that, as we rejoice in her triumph, we may learn her obedience; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
