[A prayer by Jason John Edwards, Obl.S.B., for the St. Benet Biscop Chapter of St. John’s Oblates]
Eternal Father, bless and guide thy people in the St. Benet Biscop Chapter of St. John’s Oblates; teach us thy ways and sustain us in living thy will in our lives. Help us to follow the Gospel, especially as it is expressed in the Rule of St. Benedict and through the Anglican tradition. Bless us with growth and holy living, and guide us in your holy truth; make us an instrument of unity and peace between Catholics and Anglicans. All this we pray through Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, ever one God, world without end. Amen.
