As a Catholic community of faith holy Mother Church sincerely prays for those who gave their lives in service of this country. May God grant them health, life, peace, and all good things and preserving them for many years.
May we take this opportunity to also remember the “veterans” of our Church, those men and women who have tirelessly supported their faith, who sustained their families and friends, who labored hard to build our churches when they arrived from their homelands, and who, in some cases, gave their lives to for their faith.
Personally, I pray and am grateful for the service of my father Edward who served in the US Air Force.
May Saint Martin of Tours, Saint George and all the saints sustain through holy intercession all Veterans before God the Father.
Let’s pray for the women and men who have died in service of the United States of America and for those now serving in the military services and those retired military persons. In thanksgiving we commend these people to the Lord for his mercy and his love. Saints Martin of Tours, Michael and George, pray for us.
Today is dedicated to world peace through the recognition of our countrymen’s service in the armed forces. We indeed pray for peace of mind and heart, city, state and country. We pray in thanksgiving for the sacrifices of the men and women who served the country to keep us free, safe and peaceful.
