Amen.

 

Adapted from the Night Litany for London

 

Commendation by the Bishop of London

 

Father H.A. Wilson of S. Augustine, Haggerston was a great spiritual force during his life-time and it is interesting that since his death he still continues to influence the prayers of Christian people.

 

I have very much moved by the Night Litany for London which it is believe he composed and gladly commend it for the use of faithful people.  I have no doubt that I will help those who pray and those who are prayed for.

 

My dear people I commend this Litany for your use.  I thrust that it will give you and those for whom you pray the people and comfort of God.
