This eleventh century monk was also a Bishop and Cardinal, being declared a Doctor of the Church in the nineteenth century.

He wrote: ‘May Christ be heard in our language, may Christ be seen in our life, may He be perceived in our hearts’.  This echoes the verse of the hymn attributed to St Patrick: ‘Christ be with me, Christ within me, Christ behind me, Christ before me, Christ beside me, Christ to win me, Christ to comfort and restore me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me, Christ in quiet, Christ in danger, Christ in hearts of all that love me, Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.

May Christ be, or continue to be, your true centre, and may He bless you this day.
