The Beheading of St John the Baptist

Sentence   There was a man sent from God whose name was John. He came as a witness to testify to the light. (John 1:6-7)
Collect   Almighty God, who called your servant John the Baptist to be the forerunner of your Son in birth and death: strengthen us by your grace that, as he suffered for the truth, so we may boldly resist corruption and vice and receive with him the unfading crown of glory; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
