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, 
may merit by endurance an eternal prize.
Through Christ our Lord.

"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, 
pray for us!
