Saint Alphege, Archbishop of Canterbury and Martyr

St. Alphege, Archbishop of Canterbury, is asked for advice

St. Alphege, Archbishop of Canterbury, is asked for advice, from a medieval illumination attributed to the Master of the Cité des Dames. From Wikipedia.

O God, who didst adorn thy blessed Bishop Alphege with the dignity of the priesthood and with the palm of martyrdom: Mercifully grant that we may be so assisted by his intercession before thee, that we may rejoice with him in eternal happiness; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

¶ Or this:

O God, who crownedst Saint Alphege with the glory of martyrdom: Grant unto his successors, and the people under them, to serve thee faithfully in their generation, that they may with him rejoice in thy eternal service; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

¶ Or this:

O God, who didst crown Saint Alphege thy Bishop with the glory of martyrdom: Grant unto his successors, and the people under them, to serve thee faithfully in their generation, that they may with him rejoice in thy eternal service; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

¶ Or this:

O loving God, whose martyr bishop Alphege of Canterbury suffered violent death because he refused to permit a ransom to be extorted from his people: Grant, we pray thee, that all pastors of thy flock may pattern themselves on the Good Shepherd, who laid down his life for the sheep; through him who with thee and the Holy Spirit liveth and reigneth, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
