O God, our strength and our salvation, who didst call thy servant
Thomas Becket to be a shepherd of thy people and a defender of
thy Church: Keep thy household from all evil and raise up among
us faithful pastors and leaders who are wise in the ways of the
Gospel; through Jesus Christ the shepherd of our souls, who
liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for
ever and ever. Amen.
