14th November, Blessed Hugh Faringdon and his Companions, Martyrs

14th November, Blessed Hugh Faringdon and his Companions, Martyrs

Blessed Hugh Cook or Faringdon was the last Abbot of Reading. He was accused of high treason against Henry VIII on account of his defence of the Holy See, and was hanged at the gates of his own Abbey, having been condemned without any trial.
Praesta, quaesumus, omnipotens Deus: ut qui gloriosum Hugonem Abbatem, ejusque Socios pro unitate Ecclesiae tuae Martyres fortes in sua confessione cognovimus; pios apud te in nostra intercessione sentiamus.
Grant, we beseech Thee, almighty God, that we, who acknowledge the fortutide of glorious Hugh Thine Abbot and his Companions in defending the unity of Thy Church, may enjoy their loving intercession for us before Thee.
