For Today's Feasts

Here are some appropriate prayers for today, a day of great saints. First, one for St. Gregory VII's Mass.

                                                    Lord, give your Church the spirit of courage
                                                                 and love for justice which
                                                              distinguished Pope Gregory. 
                                                      Make us courageous in condemning evil 
                                                       and free us to pursue justice with love. 
                                             We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, 
                                                who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
                                                               one God, for ever and ever.

Another one to St. Bede is here.

You have enlightened Your Church
with the learning of Saint Bede.
In Your love
may Your people learn from his wisdom
and benefit from his prayers.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son,
who lives and reigns with You
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

And one for St. Mary Magdalen de Pazzi's feast.

you love those who give themselves completely to your service,
and you filled St. Mary Magdalen de'Pazzi
with heavenly gifts and the fire of your love.
As we honour her today
may we follow her example of purity and charity.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
