St Stephen

A Prayer to St. Stephen for Assistance

O Glorious St. Stephen,
first of the martyrs,
for the sake of Christ
you gave up your life
in testimony of the
truth of His divine teaching.
Obtain for us,
dear St. Stephen,
the faith, the hope, the love
and the courage of martyrs.

When we are tempted to shirk our duty,
or deny our faith,
come to our assistance
as a shining example
of the courage of martyrs,
and win for us a love like your own.

We ask it of you
for the honor of Jesus Christ,
our Lord who is model
and reward of all martyrs.

Amen.
