Day 35 – 4th February: St Gilbert of Sempringham (1083-1190)


St Gilbert was born in Sempringham in Lincolnshire; he was the founder of the Gilbertine Order after he came into money from his father. In the later part of his life, he became ill, and he died at Sempringham in 1190.


Prayer: St Gilbert of Sempringham


Almighty God,

as we reflect on St Gilbert

we give thanks for his mission

setting up the Gilbertine Order

and the impact of this on Religious Life

in England and Wales.

We continue to pray for an increase

in vocations to the Religious Life and

ask for the intercession of St Gilbert,

for those discerning this state of life.

We make this prayer through Christ,

Your Son, Our Lord.

Amen

St Gilbert. Pray for us.
