Readings from the Bible for the Roman Catholic liturgy in the ordinary form

Saint Stephen, first martyr

The Martyrdom of St Stephen (Peter-Paul Rubens, 1620, Musée des Beaux-Arts, Valenciennes)
Mt 10:19-20

When they hand you over, do not worry about how you are to speak or what you are to say. You will be given at that moment what you are to say. For it will not be you who speak but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.
