St. Bede the Venerable + 25.May (translated from 26.May 735)


I implore you, good Jesus, that as in your mercy you have given me to drink in with delight the words of your knowledge, so of your loving kindness you will also grant me one day to come to you, the fountain of all wisdom, and to stand for ever before your face.  Amen.

St Bede the Venerable (673 – 735),
Monk, Doctor of the Church, Father of English History
