Saint Denys, Bishop and Martyr

The Martyrdom of St Denys

The Martyrdom of St Denys, mural at the Palace du Pantheon.

We beseech thee, O Lord, to grant us, after the example of blessed Denys, thy Bishop and Martyr, constancy in thy faith and truth, that we may be grounded in divine love and moved from its perfection by no temptations; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

¶ Or this:

O God, who dost build up thy Church upon the tombs of thy martyrs, and sendest leaders who inspire men to die for thee: Preserve, we beseech thee, for these latter days in our bishops and people the sacrificial flame of loyalty to thee: and reward their faithfulness with the crown of life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
