May 28, 2012: Memorial Day

This prayer was specially written for the National Moment of Remembrance

Almighty God, You loved humankind into being and you bless us now with each precious moment of life.

Our hearts are grateful for your loving faithfulness.

Grateful, too, are we for the millions of loving acts that blossom from human hearts around us every day. 

On this Memorial Day help us to remember, with deepest gratitude and awe, the extraordinary men and women who, out of love, gave their lives to protect our beloved country and preserve our liberty. 

Keep these fallen heroes in your loving care.

Help us to be ever mindful also of the wounded heroes in our midst who, with  valorous hearts, risked their lives that we might prosper and that our children’s futures be secured. 


Prayer written by Rev. Lawrence Madden, S.J.
