Saint Cedd

FAITHFUL God, you led the People of Israel through a barren wilderness to a land of promise, and your only-begotten Son Jesus Christ from death to life: in Lastingham, hallowed by the prayer and labour of St Cedd, renew us day by day in our earthly pilgrimage; so that we may be strengthened to persevere in the Faith, and bound together within the love and fellowship of Jesus Christ: who with you, O Father, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, lives and reigns one God for ever and ever. Amen.
