On this Feast of Thomas Becket we are challenged to be fearless in proclaiming our understanding of truth. May we have the courage to be faithful to our deepest held convictions–regardless of the cost.
you confirm the true faith
with the crown of martyrdom.
May the prayers of St Thomas Becket
give us the courage to proclaim our faith
by the witness of our lives.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
