may obtain the good fruit of their petition.

Cross-YellowIntercession Prayer II
Almighty God,
you granted your martyr, Thomas Becket,
the grace to give his life willingly
for the freedom of your Church.
By his prayers
make us willing to renounce our life in this world for Christ
so that we may find it in heaven.
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.

Cross-YellowIntercession Prayer III
Father,
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.

… St Thomas Becket, Pray for Us …
