Of Saint Alban, Protomartyr of England

ALMIGHTY Lord, who didst endue the blessed Alban, thy martyr, with a glorious charity and courage, so that he protected a servant of thine and suffered in his stead, grant unto us all, as thou shalt give us opportunity, to defend the weak, and to support the true ; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
