June 20: St Alban, First Martyr of England

O God, by whose grace Saint Alban gave himself up for his friend and received the martyr’s crown as the first in England to shed his blood for Christ, grant, we pray, that following his example and supported by his prayers we may worship you, the living God, and give true witness to Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen
St. Alban, pray for us.
