Renewed by the one Bread

Blessed are those who suffer persecution for the sake of justice;
the kingdom of heaven is theirs.  Matthew 5:10


Today’s Liturgy:  Prayer after Communion

Renewed by the one Bread
as we commemorate the holy Martyrs,
we humbly beseech you, O Lord,
that abiding as one in Your love,
we may merit by endurance an eternal prize.
Through Christ our Lord.

St Andrew Dung-Lac (priest) and Companions

"In the midst of these torments, which usually terrify others, I am, by the grace of God, full of joy and gladness, because I am not alone - Christ is with me.  Our Master bears the whole weight of the cross, leaving me only the tiniest, last bit." ~ St Paul Le-Bao-Tinh, Martyr, 1843

St Andrew Dung-Lac and companions, ora pro nobis!
