Tuesday 4 May 2021 The English Martyrs - Feast  Liturgical Colour: Red.


Entrance Antiphon:
Cf. Revalations 7:13-14

These who are clothed in white robes
are they who have survived the time of great distress
and have washed their robes in the blood of the Lamb, alleluia.


Collect:

Almighty God,
who in our country raised up martyrs
from every walk of life
to vindicate the authority of your Church
in teaching and worship,
grant through their intercession, we pray,
that all our people may be gathered once again
to celebrate the same sacraments
under the one Shepherd, Jesus Christ your Son.
Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.


First Reading:
Acts 7:55-60
The stoning of Stephen

Stephen, filled with the Holy Spirit, gazed into heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at God’s right hand. ‘I can see heaven thrown open’ he said ‘and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God.’ At this all the members of the council shouted out and stopped their ears with their hands; then they all rushed at him, sent him out of the city and stoned him. The witnesses put down their clothes at the feet of a young man called Saul. As they were stoning him, Stephen said in invocation, ‘Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.’ Then he knelt down and said aloud, ‘Lord, do not hold this sin against them’; and with these words he fell asleep.


Responsorial Psalm:
Psalm 30(31):3-4,6,8,17,21

Into your hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit.
or
Alleluia!

Be a rock of refuge for me,
a mighty stronghold to save me,
for you are my rock, my stronghold.
For your name’s sake, lead me and guide me.

Into your hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit.
or
Alleluia!

Into your hands I commend my spirit.
It is you who will redeem me, Lord.
As for me, I trust in the Lord:
let me be glad and rejoice in your love.

Into your hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit.
or
Alleluia!

Let your face shine on your servant.
Save me in your love.
You hide them in the shelter of your presence
from the plotting of men.

Into your hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit.
or
Alleluia!


Gospel Acclamation:
cf.Te Deum

Alleluia, Alleluia!
We praise you, O God,
we acknowledge you to be the Lord;
the noble army of martyrs praise you, O Lord.
Alleluia!


Gospel:
Matthew 10:17-20
The Spirit of your Father will be speaking in you

Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Beware of men: they will hand you over to sanhedrins and scourge you in their synagogues. You will be dragged before governors and kings for my sake, to bear witness before them and the pagans. But when they hand you over, do not worry about how to speak or what to say; what you are to say will be given to you when the time comes; because it is not you who will be speaking; the Spirit of your Father will be speaking in you.’


Prayer over the Offerings:

Look with such serenity and kindness,
we pray, O Lord,
upon these present offerings,
that they may be filled with the blessing of the Holy Spirit
and may stir in our hearts that powerful love
through which the holy Martyrs
overcame every bodily torment.
Through Christ our Lord.


Communion Antiphon:
cf. Revalations 2:7

To the victor I will give the right to eat from the tree of life,
which is in the paradise of my God, alleluia.


Prayer after Communion:

Restored by the sustenance of the one Bread, O Lord,
on the commemoration of the blessed Martyrs
we humbly pray,
that you may confirm us ever in your charity
and make us walk in newness of life.
Through Christ our Lord.
