In honor of Armistice Day/Rememberance Day/Veterans Day, let us pray for all of our soldiers who have served, are serving, their families, and may the Memory of those who have fallen asleep be Eternal!

Lord, have mercy on and keep safe all those who serve and their loved ones!

Memory Eternal to all those who have laid down their lives in order to ensure freedom for others!




Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria

May the souls of the faithfully departed rest in peace.
You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

A warm thank you to all those who sered our great nation in defense of our freedom.
And May the Memory of those soldiers who gave their lives in our defense, be Eternal.

Memory Eternal!

Oh! sleep in peace where poppies grow;
The torch your falling hands let go
Was caught by us, again held high,
A beacon light in Flanders sky
That dims the stars to those below.
You are our dead, you held the foe,
And ere the poppies cease to blow,
We'll prove our faith in you who lie
In Flanders Fields.

Oh! rest in peace, we quickly go
To you who bravely died, and know
In other fields was heard the cry,
For freedom's cause, of you who lie,
So still asleep where poppies grow,
In Flanders Fields.

As in rumbling sound, to and fro,
The lightning flashes, sky aglow,
The mighty hosts appear, and high
Above the din of battle cry,
Scarces heard amidst the guns below,
Are fearless hearts who fight the foe,
And guard the place where poppies grow.
Oh! sleep in peace, all you who lie
In Flanders Fields.

And still the poppies gently blow,
Between the crosses, row by row.
The larks, still bravely soaring high,
Are singing now their lullaby
To you who sleep where poppies grow
In Flanders Fields.

Lord have mercy on all those who suffer and die because of warfare and violence, and make their memories to be eternal.

I was asked privately by some OC.net members, why am I not contributing to this thread. Answer: I am deliberately not praying on this occasion, because of my convictions about the US militarism.

Lord have mercy and remember the American veterans past and present who sacrificed so much and grant wisdom to the elected politicians who often lack wisdom in commanding these brave men and women.
