At the end of the Intercessions:  because this week we marked the feast of St Leo, let us pray:

Lord God, as we celebrate the feast of St Leo the Great,

We recall the gifts that you gave him:

in striving for peace for the people of Gaul,

in working for the church’s unity as Pope,

in affirming our faith in Christ as ‘true God and true man’ at the Council of Chalcedon,

and in protecting the people of Rome from Attila the Hun.

Help us to share his faith and his courage

through Christ our Lord. Amen.

 

For our dead: we sing: May the souls of the faithful . . . .
