Martyrs of New Guinea. This is a day on which we can recommit ourselves to the mission of the church outside the diocese as we bring to mind in particular those Anglican women and men from Australia, Britain and Papua New Guinea who were martyrs for the faith in World War II. When the Second World War came to Papua New Guinea, the Anglican bishop, Philip Strong, expressing the general feeling amongst the mission staff, urged missionaries to stay with their people. Most of them from all the church missions did. Some survived the war, but 272 Christians died. These included 12 Anglicans, who are especially commemorated by the Anglican Church today. They died in various incidents in Papua New Guinea, the largest group being beheaded on the beach at Buna. Given that Bishop Phillip Strong was a long time resident in Wangaratta and as he is buried in the Anglican row in Wangaratta Cemetery with past Bishops of this diocese this should be a special feast for us. The following propers and readings from the New Zealand liturgy are authorized for use. Sentence When I am afraid O God most high, I will put my trust in you. Psalm 56:3 Collects Loving God, we thank you for the martyrs of Papua New Guinea, who remained faithful in their ministry in danger and even to death; may their witness strengthen your church today in service and courage, and in the power of the Spirit; through Jesus Christ our Saviour. Suppliant at Gethsemane, Christ of the martyrs, we praise you for the missionaries of Papua New Guinea, who came to serve their people and stayed when they might have escaped; may we too be willing, should you ask, to drink your cup. Post Communion Sentence Observe, from generation to generation, that none of those who put their trust in God will lack strength. (1 Maccabees 2:61)

First Reading: Zephaniah 3:14-20 14Sing aloud, O daughter Zion; shout, O Israel! Rejoice and exult with all your heart, O daughter Jerusalem! 15The Lord has taken away the judgements against you, he has turned away your enemies. The king of Israel, the Lord, is in your midst; you shall fear disaster no more. 16On that day it shall be said to Jerusalem: Do not fear, O Zion; do not let your hands grow weak. 17The Lord, your God, is in your midst, a warrior who gives victory; he will rejoice over you with gladness, he will renew you in his love; he will exult over you with loud singing 18as on a day of festival. I will remove disaster from you, so that you will not bear reproach for it.
19I

will deal with all your oppressors at that time. And I will save the lame and gather the outcast, and I will change their shame into praise and renown in all the earth. 20At that time I will bring you home, at the time when I gather you; for I will make you renowned and praised among all the peoples of the earth, when I restore your fortunes before your eyes, says the Lord. Hear the word of the Lord: Thanks be to God Psalm 130 (said antiphonally) 1 Out of the depths have I called to you, O Lord: Lord, hear my voice; 2 O let your ears consider well: the voice of my supplication. 3 If you, Lord, should note what we do wrong: Who then, O Lord, could stand? 4 But there is forgiveness with you: so that you shall be feared. 5 I wait for the Lord, my soul waits for him: and in his word is my hope. 6 My soul looks for the Lord: more than watchmen for the morning, more, I say, than watchmen for the morning. 7 O Israel, trust in the Lord, for with the Lord there is mercy: and with him is ample to redemption. 8 He will redeem Israel: from the multitude of their sins.

Second Reading: Romans 8:33-39 33Who will bring any charge against Gods elect? It is God who justifies. 34Who is to condemn? It is Christ Jesus, who died, yes, who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who indeed intercedes for us. 35Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will hardship, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36As it is written, For your sake we are being killed all day long; we are accounted as sheep to be slaughtered. 37No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, 39nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Hear the word of the Lord: Thanks be to God The Gospel: John 12:20-32 The Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to John chapter twelve beginning at the twentieth verse. Glory to you Lord Jesus Christ 20Now among those who went up to worship at the festival were some Greeks. 21They came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida in Galilee, and said to him, Sir, we wish to see Jesus. 22Philip went and told Andrew; then Andrew and Philip went and told Jesus. 23Jesus answered them, The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. 24Very truly, I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains just a single grain; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. 25Those who love their life lose it, and those who hate their life in this world will keep it for eternal life. 26Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am, there will my servant be also. Whoever serves me, the Father will honour. 27 Now my soul is troubled. And what should I sayFather, save me from this hour? No, it is for this reason that I have come to this hour. 28Father, glorify your name. Then a voice came from heaven, I have glorified it, and I will glorify it again. 29The crowd standing there heard it and said that it was thunder. Others said, An angel has spoken to him. 30Jesus answered, This voice has come for your sake, not for mine. 31Now

is the judgement of this world; now the ruler of this world will be driven out. 32And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself. For the Gospel of the Lord: Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

Pew Reflections for the Martyrs of New Guinea: No matter how bad a situation, renewal in Christ is possible. Even death cannot separate us from Gods love for us which heals and restores. If we want to bear fruit for Christ we need to die not perhaps as the Martyrs of New Guinea were called to do, but in terms of ego and will. By aligning our lives with the mind of Christ, we bear fruit and bring God glory. Todays question: Which parts of my life need to die away so that I can bring glory to God and bear fruit? Pray for all who are persecuted for their faith Give thanks for the heroic and inspiring witness of martyrs
