"The world will never be the dwelling place of peace till peace has found a home in the heart of each
and every person, till every person preserves in himself the order ordained by God to be preserved."
Saint Pope John Paul XXIII  (Pacem in Terris, 1963)
A Prayer of Blessing for those
Deployed to Serve in the Military
Lord and Holy Protector, you called Abraham and Sarah
to leave their homeland and to journey away from their
own people. Yet you kept them safe wherever they went.
Protect our children, our husbands and wives, our
mothers and fathers, and our friends and loved ones who
now must leave to fight in this war. Walk by their side
and calm any fear. Be their companion and guide their
thoughts; Encircle them with your light, and keep them
from harm; And when their service is ended, lead them
safely home again. For you, O God, are our shelter in
every storm and our refuge in times of danger. We ask
this through Christ our Lord. Amen(Diocese of San Jose)
