The Apostle of the North

St. Anskar of Denmark
c. 801 - 865

Almighty and everlasting God, you sent your servant Anskar
as an apostle to the people of Scandinavia, and enabled him
to lay a firm foundation for their conversion, though he did
not see the results of his labors: Keep your Church from
discouragement in the day of small things, knowing that when
you have begun a good work, you will bring it to a fruitful
conclusion; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
