February 6th: Saint Paul Miki and Companions
O God, strength of all the Saints, who through the Cross were
pleased to call the Martyrs Saint Paul Miki and companions to life, grant,
we pray, that by their intercession we may hold with courage even until death
to the faith that we profess. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives
and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
