Prayer In Honor of
St. Norbert

O God, who made the Bishop St. Norbert

a servant of your Church

outstanding in his prayer and pastoral seal,

grant, we ask, that by the help of his intercession,

the flock of the faithful

may always find shepherds after your own heart

and be fed in the pastures of salvation

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,

who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

900th Jubilee Prayer

of the founding of the Norbertine Order (1121-2021)

God, our Father, in your eternal wisdom and unending mercy you called Norbert of Xanten to reform the Church of his time.

Inspired by the example of the apostles and first Christians, he gathered others to live a common life in order to be sent out to preach and announce the Good News. Wearing the white habit as a sign of the Resurrection, you led him to found the first Norbertine Community 900 years ago in Premontre.

In gratitude, we celebrate this Jubilee Year of our presence and humble service in the Church. Inspire us with the zeal of Saint Norbert to be witnesses of your loving presence in the world today.

We ask this through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

St. Norbert, pray for us.
