O God, kindly watch over those exposed to the danger of military life.
Give them such strong faith that nothing may ever lead them to deny it or fear to practice it.
Fortify them by your grace against the contagion of bad example, so that, persevered from vice serving you faithfully, they ma be ready to meet death if it may come.
Most sacred heart of Jesus, inspire them with sorrow for sin and pardon them from sin.
Mary, Our Mother, be with them in battle, and should they be called upon to make the supreme sacrifice, obtain for them the grace to die in the love of your Divine Son. Saint Joseph pray for them.
Please pray for friends and relatives of our parishioners who are serving in the armed forces.
