O God our heavenly Father,
look mercifully upon the unrest in our world
and draw all people to yourself and
one another in the sure bond of peace.
We give you ready thanks
for the memory of all those men and women
who laid down their lives
in the service of their country.
As we hallow their memory
we bless you for their courage
and devotion, even unto death.
In your mercy send your peace
into the hearts of all people
through Jesus Christ our Lord. AMEN.
Prayer by Denis McBride C.Ss.R.
