O God, by whose mercy the faithful departed find rest, look kindly on your departed soldiers who gave their lives in the service of their country. Grant that through the passion, death, and resurrection of your Son that they may share in the joy of your heavenly kingdom and rejoice in you with your saints forever. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
This Memorial Day weekend, we honor those who gave their lives for us. They left selfishness behind in service of a greater good. God Bless them.
