Dedication of England to Saint Peter
Vicar of Christ,
Shepherd of the whole flock,
Rock on whom the Church is built,
we thank the Prince of Pastors,
who in the ages of Faith,
did bind this country
so sweetly and strongly to thee
and to that holy See of Rome
from which her conversion came.
We praise and bless our Lord
for those steadfast Confessors
who laid down their lives for thy honour and prerogative
in the hour when schism and heresy broke upon the land.
We desire to revive the zeal,
the devotion and the love of ancient days.
We consecrate our country,
as far as in us lies,
fervently and lovingly to thee.
We offer thee our homage.
We renew our loyalty to the Pontiff, thy successor,
who now fills the Apostolic See.
Do thou confirm and strengthen,
by thy powerful intercession,
the faith of the Pastors and people who invoke thee,
save us from apostasy,
from disunion, from religious indifference,
and from the losses to which ignorance
and temptation expose our little flock.
O most sincere and most humble penitent,
obtain for us tears of true repentance for our sins,
and a strong personal love
for our Divine Master;
O Key-bearer of the Heavenly Kingdom,
open to us the gate of Heaven,
that we may enter into the joy of the King of Glory.
Remember this realm of England,
which grew in grace and unity
under thy blessed apostolic influence
for nigh a thousand years.
Pray to Jesus that all may see the
and be Drought back to thy Fold,
which is the One Fold of Christ.
V. Thou art Peter.
R. And upon this rock I will build My Church.
Let us pray.
Raise us up, we beseech Thee, O Lord,
by the apostolic might of Thy blessed Apostle, Peter;
that the weaker we are in ourselves,
the more powerful may be the assistance
whereby we are strengthened through his intercession;
that thus, ever fortified by the protection of Thine
we may never yield to sin
nor be overwhelmed by adversity.
Through Christ our Lord.
