"O God, who made the Bishop Saint Norbert a servant of your Church outstanding in his prayer and pastoral zeal, grant, we ask, that by the help of his intercession, the flock of the faithful may always find shepherds after your own heart and be fed in the pastures of salvation. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever." Amen. – Collect for the feast of St Norbert, founder of the Canons Regular of Prémontré. Today (6 June) is his feast day. This statue of the saint is in St Peter's Basilica, Vatican City.
