Wednesday Sermon: Third week after Pentecost

Father Lee on Saint Alban the first recorded Christian martyr in the British Isles. Alban converted to Christianity after being impressed by the faith and piety of a Christian priest he had sheltered from persecution. When St. Alban’s sheltering of the priest was discovered and they came for the priest Alban put on the robes of the priest and presented himself as the priest. St. Alban refused the judges orders to recant his faith even under torture, and was beheaded for his faith. Father Lee calls us to bear witness to the faith of the martyrs, and draw on their example to maintain our faith during the hardships we face.
