Memorial Day Prayer


Almighty Father
Source of all Goodness and Love, we come to offer our praise and thanksgiving to you today, As we remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Bless the men and women, who have offered their lives at the service of our country receive them and protect them in your strong arms. Cover them with your sheltering grace and presence.
We pray also for those who have died serving our country. Receive them in your Kingdom.
We also remember the families of our troops, and ask for your unique blessings to fill their homes and grant them your peace, protection and strength to fill their lives.
May the members of our armed forces be filled with courage to face each day and may they trust in the Lord's mighty power to accomplish each task. Let our military brothers and sisters feel our love and support.
We ask this through the Intercession of our Blessed Lady, through Christ our Lord, Amen

This is a site of "Leaps of Faith" experiences and reflections. Be it Philosophical, Theological, Practical or Personal. It is also a site of Biblical reflections. But Above all, This is a site for YOU and ME.

"Leaps of Faith"

"LEAPS OF FAITH" Can be a religious movement of a person, an inner movement of belief, of trust on the greatest power of all, The Supreme being..Our Creator and Maker..Our God. They can be resolutions of a person everyday in his life to move forward, to be a better person, and to start a new life. They can be decisions of a person in times of great uncertainties, when he is not sure of what will come or happen and he makes a leap of faith. They can be steps, difficult steps that a person makes on his way to change or to start anew. Or they can simply be a persons resolve to fly, to travel..to widen his horizons, to learn more about life and to grow. These are Leaps of faith we make everyday and in great moments of our lives and they are worth considering and reflecting.
