Hail Mary (three times)

O God, who didst grant to Thy Blessed John the grace courageously to get his life for truth and justice, grant through his intercession and example that we may so lose our life in this world for Christ, that we may find it in heaven. Through Our Lord.

O God, Who didst bestow upon the blessed Martyr Thomas the grace to embrace Thy Cross with a joyous and resolute spirit amidst the snares of the world, and the sufferings of prison and death, grant, we pray Thee, through his intercession and example, that eagerly striving for faith and justice we may merit to come to the joys of everlasting life. Through Our Lord.
