For this Holy Feast


The following prayer was composed in 1978 by Fr. James T. Moore, PhD, co-founder of the Church of Our Lady of Walsingham in Houston, Texas.  It remains a vital and important prayer to pray... especially today.

O JESUS, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I offer to you my continual obedience, pleading that all Anglicans seeking union with the Apostolic See of Peter may have the fruition of their hope. By the power of your Divine Spirit so guide the Holy Father in Rome that this union will be accomplished and that what is good and true in our heritage may be preserved to the benefit of the Universal Church. Grant that Anglican bishops and priests longing for this union may be granted continued exercise of the priestly ministry under the authority of the Roman See and that Christians everywhere may once again know the Chair of Peter as that rock upon which your Church on earth is founded, against which hell cannot prevail. Amen.
+Ave Jesu Christe!
