Many thanks to Fr Brian Doolan, Parish Priest of Brailes, for the Daphne Pollen picture of the Forty Martyrs and to the Oratorians in Bournemouth for the candle stand - electric for safety reasons but very realistic! 24131580_10155097849130267_105036003286838939_nAlmighty God,
who in our country raised up martyrs
from every walk of life
to vindicate the authority of Your Church
in teaching and worship,
grant through their intercession, we pray,
that all our people may be gathered once again
to celebrate the same sacraments
under the one Shepherd, Jesus Christ Your Son.
Who lives and reigns with You in the unity
of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
