Memorial Day (USA)
Memorial Day (USA) –
O God, who have revealed
that peacemakers are to be called your children,
grant, we pray,
that we may work without ceasing to establish that justice
which alone ensures true and lasting peace.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
~Collect from the Mass for the Preservation of Peace and Justice, suggested for Memorial Day in the USA; The Roman Missal, 3rd ed.
