Prayer on Referendum Day


The outcome of the referendum today, 23 June, will have consequences for the future of the UK of course, but also for the rest of Europe and indeed for the world.

In choosing the path to the future I pray that UK voters will not forget what divisions in our Europe have brought upon us in the past, and that they will remember the values (which were Christian-inspired) that underpin the vision of the EU. I pray that the electorate will cast their votes bearing in mind what is right for the common good of all, in the off-shore islands of Britain and Ireland, on the continent and in the family of the world's nations.

May the Patrons of Europe, St Benedict of Nursia. St Cyril, St Methodius, St Bridget of Sweden, St Catherine of Siena and St Edith Stein (Teresa Benedicta of the Cross) stand alongside us and pray with us.

I voted to remain.
