Memorial Day.         “Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” John 15:13.
Each year, on the last Monday in May, we celebrate Memorial Day. A special day dedicated to honor those brave men and women who died in all of America’s wars, as well as Veterans and current members of the U.S. military. On this day, we remember those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom in giving their lives. This Memorial Day, let us spend a few moments in quiet reflection and prayer to remember all those, who have each and every day, put their lives in harm’s way, so that we might live in freedom, today! Let us also keep in our prayer the brave men and women who have lost their lives fighting for freedom in Ukraine and those who continue to fight for Ukrainian freedom...

Let us pray a Prayer for Peace: O Lord, Grant peace in our days, Peace to our souls. Peace to our families, Peace to our country And peace among nations.          --Pope Pius XII            God Bless America and Ukraine!
