Remember that when you leave this earth, you can take with you nothing that you have received--only what you gave given: a full heart, enriched by honest service, love, sacrifice, and courage.
On Memorial Day, let us pray to the Prince of Peace:
-- for the repose of the souls of all soldiers and civilians who have died in wars
--for the consolation of their loved ones
--for healing and justice for veterans and others who have been physically and emotionally wounded in war
-- for the just and peaceful resolution of all present and future conflicts
Holy and Mighty,
Holy Immortal One,
Have mercy upon us.
