Blessed Edward Oldcorne, convert & martyr

Almighty, ever-living God, you gave your martyr Edward Oldcorne grace to lay down his life for Christ. Help our weakness too: give us the strength to live for you, even as he did not shrink from dying for your sake. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever. Amen
