The Martyrs of Japan

Martyrs of Nagasaki

The 26 Martyrs of Japan at Nagasaki, by Wolfgang Kilian (1581-1663). From Wikipedia.

Almighty God, by whose grace and power thy holy martyrs in Japan triumphed over suffering and despised death: Grant, we beseech thee, that enduring hard ness, and waxing valiant in fight, we may with the noble army of martyrs receive the crown of everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

¶ Or this:

O God our Father, who didst bring the holy martyrs of Japan  through the suffering of the cross to the joys of eternal life: Grant that we, encouraged by their example, may hold fast to the faith we profess, even unto death itself; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, one God, world without end. Amen.
