A Season’s Prayer To St. Adelaide

1


Separated by a decade and millennium

And yet you persevere in times of grief and stress

Quietly walking among combatants in gloom

In your pious and reverent way seeking redress


Oh tenacious handmaiden for peace and friendship

Oh reconciler of enemies, balsam pure

Sailing with alms for the poor aboard the White Ship

Oh Empress of the Millennium, decency’s lure


Give us your Saint’s wisdom, kindness and charity

To bear the burdens of modernity in stride

To withstand the wars of our human city

To cleanse and wash away the inequities wide


Oh Saint Adelaide, intervene for us, please

Breathe into the lungs of this world, the kiss of peace.

    Thanks for sharing. I was looking for a novena to her, and am turning this into one. 🙂
