‘Through the gate of death may they pass to their joyful resurrection’ is the inscription at the American cemetery, Obama Beach, in Normandy France.

The Normandy Prayer

Oh Eternal Lord God

Who has united together all the Veterans

of the Normandy Campaign

Grant on we beseech you

Your Blessing

and give strength to carry on our work

To bring aid and common purpose

Throughout our Association

We ask this in the name of

Jesus Christ

Whose courage never fails


Prayer for Fallen Soldiers

Dear Lord Jesus and Mary, Mother of God,
Hold all these brave souls in the palm of your hand, comfort them and their families.

Send angels of protection, love, and comfort to all the service men and women still at war,
bring them home safely and comfort their families.

We ask all our prayers in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Eternal rest grant until them, O Lord and let your perpetual light shine upon them and all the holy souls of the faithfully departed. Amen

I will be reflecting more on this day in regards to family members, who were living under the Nazi Regime in Slovakia at another time. This day should be set aside for those fallen, who gave their lives, to bring to an end such misery for so many.
