A Prayer for the Provisional Feast day of Elizabeth Seton

Holy God, who didst bless Elizabeth Seton with thy grace as wife, mother, educator and founder, that she might spend her life in service to thy people: Help us, by her example, to express our love for thee in love of others; through Jesus Christ our Redeemer, who livest and reignest with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

  1. A Senior Priest says:

    How many of these ‘provisional’ commemorations are there in this new book? Not that it matters in St Elizabeth Seton’s case since she’s already been canonized.

  2. Anastasios says:

    Ironic that we commemorate those who leave the Episcopal Church for Rome, but depose those who leave for other Anglican bodies. I don’t understand the rationale behind “Holy Women, Holy Men” which fills the Church Year with propers from the sublime (JH Newman) to the ridiculous (John Muir, the Redwood guy who hated organized religion).
