The Liturgical Calendar: The Church Remembers

Today the church remembers Paul Shinji Sasaki, Bishop of Mid-Japan, and of Tokyo, 1946, and Philip Lindel Tsen, Bishop of Honan, China, 1954.

Almighty God, we thank you for the faith and witness of Paul Sasaki, bishop in the Nippon Sei Kyo Kai, tortured and imprisoned by his government, and Philip Tsen, leader of the Chinese Anglican Church, arrested for his faith. We pray that all Church leaders oppressed by hostile governments may be delivered by your mercy, and that by the power of the Holy Spirit we may be faithful to the Gospel of our Savior Jesus Christ; who livesand reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
