Today the church celebrates The Fifth Day of the Octave of Christmas, and also The Feast of Saint Thomas Becket, bishop and martyr. Let us pray. O God, who gave the martyr Saint Thomas Becket the courage to give up his life for the sake of justice, grant with his intercession that renouncing our life for the sake of Christ in this world, we may find it in Heaven. Through our Lord Jesus Christ who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit. One God forever and ever. Amen.
