3rd November, St Winifred, Virgin and Martyr

St Winifred, Virgin and Martyr
(in some dioceses, including Shrewsbury)




Loquebar de testimoniis tuis in conspectu regum, et non confundebar: et meditabar in mandatis tuis, quae dilexi nimis. * Beati immaculati in via, qui ambulant in lege Domini.
I spoke of Thy testimonies before kings, and I was not ashamed: I meditated also on Thy commandments, which I loved. * Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the Lord.
(Psalm 118,46-47,1 from the Introit of Mass).



Deus, qui inter cétera poténtiae tuae mirácula etiam in sexu frágili victóriam martýrii contulísti: concéde propítius; ut, qui beátae Winifridae Virginis et Martyris tuae natalítia cólimus, per ejus ad te exémpla gradiámur.
O God, who among the wonders of Thy power hast granted even to the weaker sex the triumph of martyrdom: mercifully grant that we who celebrate the heavenly birthday of blessed Winifred Thy virgin and martyr, may, through her example, advance nearer to Thee.
(Collect)
