Fr. Jacques Hamel Ora Pro Nobis

 I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held.  –  rev 6:9

 

Father Jacques Hamel, Pray for us.

There are a number of Catholic websites which have posted the prayer for the dead (Eternal rest grant…) for Fr. Hamel, in response to his martyrdom. I would argue that in the case of martyrs they don’t need our prayers, we need theirs. It has always been the faith of the Church that martyrdom makes one an instant saint.
