Saint Laurence, Deacon at Rome and Martyr

Martyrdom of St Lawrence

The Martyrdom of St Lawrence by Tintoretto (1518–1594). Licensed under Public Domain via Wikimedia Commons

O God, who gavest grace to thy servant Laurence to be a wise guardian of the treasures of the Church, a faithful attendant upon his chief, and a bold witness in his martyrdom to the Christian faith: Stir us by his example to whole-hearted devotion, and by thy returning fire prepare us for the judgement that is to come; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

¶ Or this:

Almighty God, grant us grace to quench the flames of our sins, as thou didst endue the Blessed Laurence with power to withstand the fire of his torments; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.
