Memorial Day Prayer for Catholics
edit_button


COMMEMORATION OF THE DEAD 

Remember, O Lord, Thy servants, who have gone before us with the sign of faith and rest in the sleep of peace. 

To these, O Lord, and to all who rest in Christ, grant, we pray Thee, a place of refreshment, of light, 
and of peace. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen. 

PRAYER FOR THE WAR 

Our Father, Who art in Heaven: give us, we pray Thee, the courage and the strength to stamp out the threat of paganism and slavery that hangs over the world today. 
Be merciful to all those who have died in the service of our country. 
Console those who have lost their loved ones in the struggle. 
Help our fighting men to be always clean of heart and therefore unafraid. 
Soothe the wounded in battle. 
Sustain the courage of those who suffer persecution for conscience' sake. 
Have pity on all who have been insulted, robbed, tortured, defiled, enslaved by their conquerors. 
Grant wisdom to our leaders, civil and military, 
that they may most effectively direct our efforts, at home and abroad. 
Teach us all to walk humbly with Thee, so that we may be worthy to conquer, 
and having conquered may build a peace with justice, under the Fatherhood of God. 
Amen.
