Beheading of St John the Baptist

"God our Father, you called John the Baptist to be the herald of your Son's birth and death. As he gave his life in witness to truth and justice, so may we strive to profess our faith in your Gospel. Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen." 29 August is the feast of the Martyrdom of St John the Baptist, and this stained glass detail depicting the event is in Glastonbury parish church.
