Celebrating the newly manifest commemoration of the holy King Edward, who shone forth of old in the virtues and suffered undeservedly, and bowing down before his precious relics in gladness we cry out: Wondrous art Thou in Thy Saint, O God!
Thou didst shine forth in the land of Wessex as a pious King and radiant Martyr. For when the enemies of godly order fell upon thee, thou didst bear the wounds and blows, and to thy Saviour thou didst speedily depart. But now thou workest a multitude of miracles for them that call upon thee: Rejoice, O holy King and Martyr Edward, intercessor for our land!
A hagiography of St Edward is linked to from the title of this post, and his relics may be venerated at the Church Abroad's monastery at Brookwood.
Thanks to Leetle M for suggesting continuing the lives of Saints of the British Isles. In related news, Credo has today posted this about St Wulfstan.
