Memorial Day

The following prayer was sent to me by Sadlier Publishing Co.  It seems appropriate to share it on this Memorial Day.  “Give us the grace to find alternatives to vengeance and violence, and the courage to advocate for peaceful solutions to our conflicts.  Center our hope in you so that, like the prophet Isaiah, we, too, envision a world without war. With all hope in your power and presence, we pray.”

As we celebrate this Memorial Day may we always remember those who have died serving our country.  It is a somber day as it is raining and rather gloomy.  Last night there was a wonderful tribute to our armed forces from our nation’s capital.  It was an amazing tribute to all who served both living and deceased.  As we celebrate today let us take time to pause and reflect on the true reason for this day and remember with gratitude all who paid the ultimate sacrifice.  Happy Memorial Day!
