A National Solemnity: We couldn't say it any better...

Please read these two blogs. They truly hit the heart of this solemn weekend. God bless and keep our military both serving and retired, alive and in their eternal reward. They truly know how to sacrifice for others. Amen.
A reflection from a "military brat":

and Msgr. Pope's reflection:

I hate that anyone has to die in war. War is ugly!

I agree, war is terrible.

Sometimes we have to fight to keep evil men like Hitler from overtaking the world.

For that reason it leaves me with mixed feelings because then the troops are dying to save us from a more terrible evil.

Christ died a terrible death to save us from our own evil too. That's why I respect our service men and women.

I got choked up too this Memorial Day. Thinking of all the lives lost these past 11 years, all the spouses who had to go on, all the children, some who never knew their daddy or mommy...ugh... it gets me teary eyed all over again. :( Praying for our military and their families should be a constant vigil coming from us Christians. <><

Matthew 5:16 So let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.
