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
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.
St Gilbert. Pray for us.
