What We Believe...
and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.
Who is St. Henry ?
German King and Holy Roman Emperor, son of Duke Henry II (the Quarrelsome) and of the Burgundian Princess Gisela; b. 972; d. in his palace of Grona, at Gottingen, 13 July, 1024.
St. Henry, as well as being the Patron Saint for our church, is the patron saint of the childless, of Dukes, of the handicapped, and those rejected by religious orders. Born in 972, he received an excellent education under the care of St. Wolfgang, Bishop of Ratisbon. In 995, he succeeded his father as Duke of Bavaria, and in 1002, upon the death of his cousin, Otho III, he was elected emperor. He was married to St. Cunegundes. He was a very holy man who did not let these titles get in the way of the greater glory of God. He was most watchful over the Church. Circumstances drove him into battle from which he emerged victorious every time. He received the imperial crown at the hands of Pope Benedict VIII in 1014. He was quite generous and made numerous pious foundations, gave liberally to pious institutions and built the Cathedral of Bamberg. His holy death occurred at the castle of Grone, near Halberstad, in 1024.
A patron saint can help us when we follow the example of that saint's life and ask for that saint's intercessory prayers to God.
The Nicene Creed
I believe in one God,
the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all things visible and invisible.
I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ,
the Only Begotten Son of God,
born of the Father before all ages.
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father;
through him all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation
he came down from heaven,
and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary,
and became man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate,
he suffered death and was buried,
and rose again on the third day
in accordance with the Scriptures.
He ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory
to judge the living and the dead
and his kingdom will have no end.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified,
who has spoken through the prophets.
I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church.
I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
