Prayer for Chaplains

I just got off the phone with CH (CPT) Brian L. Stanley USA. He is finished with his basic training and leaves for Germany tomorrow morning at 11 and will arrive in Germany the following day. Please keep him, and his fellow comrades in your prayers!

PRAYER FOR MILITARY CHAPLAINS

O God, Who hast appointed Thine only-begotten Son to be the eternal High Priest for the glory of Thy Majesty and the salvation of mankind; grant that they whom He hath chosen to be His chaplains and the stewards of His mysteries, maybe found faithful in the fulfilment of the ministry which they have received.

Grant, O Holy and Mighty Trinity, that they may never lose that purity of heart with which they were ordained, though all around them lie terrors and the uncertainty of war. Give them an abundance of wise counsel, fortitude, temperance and justice and supernatural charity. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

It was snowing here yesterday -- made me feel welcome, like back home in Michigan. We may have a white Christmas here. There are many Masses to be said here, confessions to be heard, soldiers and their families to be blessed. I look forward to this new ministry.
