PRAYER FOR DECEASED AMERICAN VETERANS
To be recited on Memorial Day

O God who hast said: “Greater love than this no man hath that a man lay down his life for his brethren”, have mercy on those whom we remember today: those who laid down their lives in behalf of our beloved country, especially those who among their number have shared with us the True Faith. Thou didst call them to risk and even lose their lives for the safety of their brethren, so now preserve them from those terrible torments which await those who die in anger or whom death surprises unprepared for that solemn moment. Teach us all the folly of war and the need to pray and sacrifice for peace among the nations by the return of sinners to Thee. May Our Divine Savior, the Prince of Peace, teach us the lessons of His Gospel and preserve us all from the horrors of war, and through His immaculate Mother, the Queen of Peace, may we all journey safely to our heavenly homeland. Amen. Our Father, Hail Mary, Eternal rest.
SANCTUARY LIGHT: The Sanctuary light is requested to burn this week May 29 – June 4 by Michaelene Ostrum in memory of Michael Sirak.
