St Anselm was born in Italy, he become a monk in Normandy and it was there where he taught theology. He became Abbott at Bec and went on to become the Archbishop of Canterbury after his master Lanfranc died. He was well know for organising church life in England and his many theological writings. St Anselm died in 1109.
as we reflect on St Anselm today,
we give thanks for his work as
an Abbott and Archbishop of Canterbury.
May St Anselm inspire us through
his teachings of theology and let us look to him
as an example, spreading the Gospel message
to those around us.
We make this prayer through Christ, Your Son, Our Lord.
St Anselm… Pray for us.
