A MESSAGE FROM FATHER MONTY – Here is a prayer for you to
say at a family gathering or when you visit the graves of your loved ones. Don’t
forget that Memorial Day is, first and foremost, a day to honor our Nation’s war
Let us remember those who have died in defense of our
Nation and for those who suffer most from war: the
homeless, the orphaned,
the hungry, and the innocent…
Almighty God and Father, by the mystery of the
cross, you have made us strong; by the sacrament of the resurrection you have
sealed us as your own. Look kindly upon your servants, now freed from the bonds
of mortality, and count them among your saints in heaven.
Eternal rest grant
unto them, O Lord. Let perpetual light shine upon them.
May they rest in
May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed,
through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

"Divided tongues, as of fire, appeared among them, and a tongue rested on each
of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in
other languages, as the Spirit gave them ability"
