Blessed Adrian Fortescue, a fifteenth and sixteenth century lay Dominican, husband, father, and martyr.
since all things are within your power,
grant through the prayers of blessed Adrian, your martyr,
that we who keep his feast today
may become stronger in the love of your name
and hold to your holy Church even at the cost of our lives.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
