Archbishop of Canterbury, Martyr
Dean Willis of Canterbury Cathedral, who gave an Eastertide sermon in 2012 at Saint Thomas, remembered at some length the martyrdom of Saint Alpege. You may listen to that sermon here.
O loving God, whose martyr bishop Alphege of Canterbury suffered violent death because he refused to permit a ransom to be extorted from his people: Grant, we pray thee, that all pastors of thy flock may pattern themselves on the Good Shepherd, who laid down his life for the sheep; through him who with thee and the Holy Spirit liveth and reigneth, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
