PRAYER (traditional language):

Almighty God, who didst raise up thy servant Anselm to teach The Church of his day to understand its faith in thine eternal Being, perfect justice, and saving mercy: Provide thy Church in every age with devout and learned scholars and teachers, that we may be able to give a reason for the hope that is in us; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen


 

A Prayer of Anselm

"My God,

I pray that I may so know you and love you

that I may rejoice in you.

And if I may not do so fully in this life

let me go steadily on
to the day when I come to that fullness ...
Let me receive
That which you promised through your truth,

 

 

that my joy may be full."


A Song of Anselm

"Jesus, as a mother you gather your people to you:

You are gentle with us as a mother with her children;

Often you weep over our sins and our pride:

tenderly you draw us from hatred and judgement.

You comfort us in sorrow and bind up our wounds:
in sickness you nurse us,
and with pure milk you feed us.
Jesus, by your dying we are born to new life:
by your anguish and labour we come forth in joy.
Despair turns to hope through your sweet goodness:
through your gentleness we find comfort in fear.
Your warmth gives life to the dead:
your touch makes sinners righteous.
Lord Jesus, in your mercy heal us:
in your love and tenderness remake us.
In your compassion bring grace and forgiveness:

 

 

for the beauty of heaven may your love prepare us."
