Let us pray.
God of our ancestors who set their hearts on you, 
of those who fell asleep in peace, 
and of those who won the martyrs' violent crown:
we are surrounded by these witnesses
as by clouds of fragrant incense. 
In this age we would be counted
in this communion of all the saints;
keep us always in their good and blessed company.
In thier midst we make every prayer
through Christ who is our Lord for ever and ever.
R. Amen
