A Prayer for the Feast Day of Evelyn Underhill

O God, Origin, Sustainer, and End of all creatures: Grant that thy Church, taught by thy servant Evelyn Underhill, guarded evermore by thy power, and guided by thy Spirit into the light of truth, may continually offer to thee all glory and thanksgiving, and attain with thy saints to the blessed hope of everlasting life, which thou hast promised us by our Savior Jesus Christ; who with thee and the same Holy Spirit liveth and reigneth, one God, now and for ever.

  1. New Reformation Advocate says:

    I’m glad that Evelyn Underhill was added relatively recently as one of the lesser saints in TEC’s calendar. Her famous writings on Christian mysticism retain their value after many decades. But I’m especially fond of her classic book, simply called [b]Worship.[/b] It remains one of the best books ever written on that vital topic: full of wisdom, balanced judgment, and an astonishingly broad range of sympathies that seems characteristically Anglican.

    Thanks God for her life and witness.
