St. Edward the Confessor Feast Day

“All kings will pay him homage, and all nations will serve him.” – Ps. 72:11

Sovereign God, who set your servant Saint Edward upon the throne of an earthly kingdom and inspired him with zeal for the kingdom of heaven: grant that we may so confess the faith of Christ by word and deed, that we may, with all your saints, inherit your eternal glory; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
