Most Holy God, whose servant Tabitha thou didst raise from the dead to display thy power and confirm thy message that thy Son is Lord; grant unto us thy grace, that aided by her prayers and example, we may be given a new life in thy Spirit to do works pleasing in thy sight; Through Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord; who livest and reignest with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
Today is the feast of St Tabitha, the Dorcas of Acts who made fine needlework for the poor and was raised from the dead by St Peter. A popular figure in church art, here by William Hudson, 1870 at Uggeshall, Suffolk and Percy Bacon, 1928 at Burley-on-the-Hill, Rutland. pic.twitter.com/CQesBQ03nM
