VETERAN’S DAY November 11th
Honoring all who served

On Veterans Day, we pay tribute to the service and sacrifice of
the men and women who in defense of our freedom have bravely worn the uniform of the United States. From the fields and forests of war-torn Europe to the jungles of Southeast Asia, from the deserts of Iraq to the mountains of Afghanistan, brave patriots have protected our Nation’s ideals, rescued millions from tyranny, and helped spread freedom around the globe. America’s veterans answered the call when asked to protect our Nation from some of the most brutal and ruthless tyrants, terrorists, and militaries the world has ever known. They stood tall in the face of grave danger and enabled our Nation to become the greatest force for freedom in human history. Members of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard have answered a high calling to serve and have helped secure America at every turn. 
Our country is forever indebted to our veterans for their quiet courage and exemplary service. We also remember and honor those who laid down their lives in freedom’s defense. These brave men and women made the ultimate sacrifice for our benefit. On Veterans Day, we remember these heroes for their valor, their loyalty, and their dedication. Their selfless sacrifices continue to inspire us today as we work to advance peace and extend freedom around the world. God Bless our Veterans
AMERICA HOME OF THE FREE BECAUSE OF THE BRAVE

ST. JOSAPHAT
NOV. 12
The feast of St. Josaphat, Priest-martyr, is especially dear, glorious and joyful for the faithful of the Ukrainian Catholic Church because it is a feast of our own Ukrainian Saint, our brother who is of our own flesh and bone; it is the feast of a great Apostle and Martyr for the holy faith and the unity of the Churches.
Not only our own Ukrainian Catholic Church, but the entire Catholic Church venerates, praises, and prays to St. Josaphat and erects churches in his honor. His relics are enshrined in the center of the Catholic world – in the Basilica of the Apostle St. Pater in Rome. St. Josaphat is the first Ukrainian Saint ever to be canonized by the Catholic Church. It is due to him and to his martyrdom that today we profess the true Christian faith and are members of the true Church of Christ.

The Feast Day of
SAINT MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL

The Feast of the Archangel Michael and the holy Angels indicates to us the significant role the Angels play in our salvation. This feast also reminds up of our duties towards the Angels, especially toward our Guardian Angel. Throughout our entire life, at every moment and in every place our guardian angel watches over us, protects us, inspires us with good thoughts, warns us against sin, and intercedes for us before God. Our Guardian Angel is our guide to heaven, our helper against temptation, our companion at the hour of death. He is the constant witness of our thoughts, our words, and our deeds. Only in heaven will we one day see how much we owe to our Guardian Angel. From this comes our duty to venerate the holy Angels, to praise them and to thank them every day for their assistance and protection.
Devotion to our own Guardian Angel is pleasing to him, not only when we venerate and pray to him, but above all, when we imitate him. He gives us a beautiful example of holiness. He teaches us by his example how to love God, how to serve him and glorify him. Therefore let us strive to love God as our Angel loves him, with greater fervor, and zealously carry out God’s will, as he does and as do all the other Angels in heaven
St. Michael was the protector and defender of God’s chosen people. Now he is the defender of the Church and of all the Faithful, whom he defends against the constant assaults of the devil.
