"Video caelos apertos, et Jesum stantem a dextris virtutis Dei:  Domine Jesu, accipe spiritum meum, et ne statuas illis hoc peccatum."

"I see the heavens opened, and Jesus standing on the right hand of the power of God:  Lord Jesus, receive my spirit, and lay not this sin to their charge."

--the Communion prayer for the Mass of Saint Stephen, taken from Acts 7. 55, 58, 59.

Saint Stephen, Protomartyr, pray for us!  (And a happy feast day to my son Stephen and to all of you Stephens/Stevens:  what a great patron you have!)
