Jan. 27: Blessed Edward Oldcorne, Martyr


God of power and mercy, you gave Bl. Edward Oldcorne the grace to overcome the sufferings of martyrdom. Grant to us who celebrate his victory that the power of your protecting hand may keep us unshaken in the face of our ancient enemy and all his hidden snares. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen
