Heavenly Father, who didst call thy servant Bede, while still a child, to devote his life to thy service in the disciplines of religion and scholarship: Grant that as he labored in the Spirit to bring the riches of thy truth to his generation, so we, in our various vocations, may strive to make thee known in all the world; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
Today is the Feast day of The Venerable Bede, Monk at Jarrow, Scholar & Historian, who died in 735. Pictured is the opening of one of Bede's many biblical commentaries (Super parabolas Salomonis) in a 12th-century manuscript. [MS 147] pic.twitter.com/qC8e0UYce8
