Feb. 3: Saint Werburgh of Chester

Saint Werburgh of Chester, Abbess (d. 700AD)

Almighty God, by whose grace Saint Werburgh persevered in imitation of Christ’s humility and poverty: grant through her prayer that we also may remain faithful to our vocation, and so come to that perfection which you have set forth for us in your Son. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen

Saint Werburgh, pray for us.
