Commemoration of St. Boniface, Missionary to the Germans

An Englishman who brought the Good News to Germany and to the Netherlands. Martyred upon this day in 754.

From The Treasury:

Almighty God, You called Boniface to be a witness and martyr in Germany, and by his labor and suffering You raised up a people for Your own possession. Pour out Your Holy Spirit upon Your Church in every land, that by the service and sacrifice of many Your holy name may be glorified and Your kingdom enlarged; through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
