As we thank our Veterans today for their service and sacrifice, we raise our hearts in prayer also for those still in active duty, for the innocent victims of war and for a time when we will no longer find ourselves in violent battles over worldly matters.
For Deceased Veterans (from usscb.org)
by whose mercy the faithful departed find rest,
look kindly on your departed veterans who gave their
lives in the service of their country.
Grant that through the passion, death, and resurrection of your Son
they may share in the joy of your heavenly kingdom
and rejoice in you with your saints forever.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
