God our hope and strength,
by your grace Bridget’s visions of Christ’s sufferings
led her to challenge corruption in high places
and to work for the poor, the sick and the pilgrims;
grant us such a vision of your purpose
that we may be emboldened
in our service to you and to all people;
through Jesus Christ our Saviour.
hallowed be your name
on earth as in heaven.
when you give to us your servants any great matter to do,
grant us also to know that it is not the beginning,
but the continuing of it, until it is thoroughly finished
which yields the true glory.
