Pour out upon us, O Lord, that same Spirit by which thy deacon Ephrem rejoiced to proclaim in sacred song the mysteries of faith; and so gladden our hearts that we, like him, may be devoted to thee alone; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
We celebrate St Ephrem the Syrian today. He is a special saint for our Cardiff parish because St Theodore of Tarsus both spent time in Edessa – St Ephrem’s home – and drew on his ideas for his own writing. Holy Ephrem, pray for us! pic.twitter.com/IeI0gopndL
