A Request to have this poem in the bulletin by an anonymous parishioner
WITH A DONATION OF $25 – to honor our Canadian Neighbors

With proud thanksgiving, a mother for her children,
England mourns for her dead across the sea.
Flesh of her flesh they were, spirit of her spirit,
Fallen in the cause of the free.
Solemn the drums thrill. Death august and royal
Sings sorrow up into immortal spheres.
There is a music in the midst of desolation
And a glory that shines upon our tears.

They went with songs to the battle; they were young,
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds encountered.
They fell with their faces to the foe.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years contemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

The mingle not with their laughing comrades again;
They sit no more at familiar tables at home;
They have no lot in our labor of the day-time;
they sleep beyond England’s foam.
But where our desires are and our hopes profound,
Felt a a well spring that is hidden from sight,
To the innermost heart of their own land they are known
As the stars are known to the night;

As the stars that shall be bright when we are dust,
Moving in marches upon the heavenly plain;
As the stars are starry in the time of our darkness,
To the end, to the end they remain.
Author: Lawrence Binyon (21st September, 1914)

Veterans Day is intended to honor and thank all military personnel who served the United States in all wars, particularly living veterans.
It is marked by parades and church services and in many places the American flag is hung at half-mast.
A period of silence lasting two minutes may be held at 11:00 AM.

~Veteran’s Day Prayer~
A prayer solemn, We offer today;
It is for Veterans, We now pray.
Selfless, sacrificial, Risking death gallantly
Soldiers do all this, To ensure we are free.
So many have died, There on the battleground;
No music then to comfort, Simply gun blasts all around.
So many names and faces, That I will never know;
So many stories of bravery, In warring winds did blow.
Grateful am I to these, Men and Women brave –
To think of all they did, All they risked, all they gave.
Extend this heartfelt prayer, I will, to reach their ears;
How treasured they are to me, Marching onward despite fears.
And for those who have passed, May God bless them lavishly
These very ones who died, So that we would live free.
In the stories of Veterans, We see a shadow of the Cross
Christ died to set us free, Our gain was through His loss.
Gratefully we praise these heroes, Often silent and unknown.
And we remember Christ’s blood, From which eternal life has grown.
