5th January, St Telesphorus, Pope and Martyr

St Telesphorus, Pope and Martyr

St Telesphorus, Pope, undertook numerous labours to confess the divinity of Christ, and suffered a glorious martyrdom at Rome in AD138.

Deus, qui nos beáti Telésphopri Mártyris tui atque Pontíficis ánnua sollemnitáte laetíficas: concéde propítius; ut, cujus natalítia cólimus, de ejúsdem étiam protectióne gaudeámus.
O God, who givest us joy by the annual solemnity of blessed Telesphorus Thy martyr and bishop, mercifully grant that we may rejoice in the protection of him whose birthday we celebrate.
(Collect)
