THE DAILY OFFICE/JOSH THOMAS:¨Anglicans have prayed in their native languages since 1549 because of Archbishop of Canterbury, Thomas Cranmer

Anglicans have prayed in their native languages since 1549 because of this man, Thomas Cranmer, compiler of the Book of Common Prayer. He combined various prayers from the eight-fold monastic Liturgy of the Hours to give us Morning and Evening Prayer. He was Henry VIII’s archbishop, then was put to death under Queen Mary. (artist unknown)
Collect of Thomas Cranmer, Archbishop of Canterbury and Martyr, 1556
Merciful God, through the work of Thomas Cranmer you renewed the worship of your Church by restoring the language of the people, and through his death you revealed your power in human weakness: Grant that by your grace we may always worship you in spirit and in truth; through Jesus Christ, our only Mediator and Advocate, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen
