Martyrdom of Saint John the Baptist

O God, who willed that Saint John the Baptist should go ahead of your Son both in his birth and in his death, grant that, as he died a Martyr for truth and justice, we, too, may fight hard for the confession of what you teach. We ask this in your name, Amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!
