Prayers today in memory of all who have made the ultimate sacrifice so we can enjoy our way of life.
At this morning's Mass, our pastor , who served as a navy chaplain for twenty years, honored our veterans in a special way. Before ending the Mass the choir sang the theme song for each branch of the military. All who served that were present were asked to stand when their branch's song was played. Each time, enthusiastic applause arose from the congregation. It was lovely tribute, and after speaking to a few friends, I learned that my eyes weren't the only not staying dry.
May our Lord bless and protect all whose job it is to keep us safe!
