The Prayer Of The Chalice
by Frances Nuttall


The Prayer Of The Chalice

Father, to Thee I raise my whole being,
a vessel emptied of self. Accept Lord,
this my emptiness, and so fill me with
Thyself - Thy Light, Thy Love, Thy
Life - that these, Thy precious Gifts
may radiate through me and overflow
the chalice of my heart into
the hearts of all with whom I
come in contact this day
revealing unto them
the beauty of
Thy Joy
of Thy Peace
which nothing can destroy



About Frances Nuttall
Frances Nuttall was born in 1892 in India of English parents, her father being a well-known architect and water-diviner, and her grandfather the Government Astronomer in Madras, Norman Pogson. She was a gifted artist and calligrapher, being a Fellow of the Society of Scribes and Illuminators. She did many wonderful calligraphic works and illuminations in the manner of the Celtic scribes, as well as combining this work with book binding and leather work. In later life she became more involved in her mystical interests and moved to Glastonbury where she was much involved in the Chalice Well Trust and the early Glastonbury movement. She did a rather wonderful painting of Joseph of Arimathea. She died in Glastonbury in 1983.
