On November 11, as we commemorate Veterans Day by recalling the sacrifices of our service men and women, we are mindful of those currently serving our country, both here and overseas. Praying for their safe return to their friends and loved ones, we lift them up:

Almighty God, we commend to your gracious care and keeping all the men and women of our armed forces at home and abroad. Defend them day by day with your heavenly grace; strengthen them in their trials and temptations; give them courage to face the perils which beset them; and grant them a sense of your abiding presence wherever they may be.  Amen.

“Christ has no body but yours, no hands, no feet on earth but yours, yours are the eyes with which He looks compassion on this world, yours are the feet with which He walks to do good, yours are the hands, with which He blesses all the world” (St. Teresa of Avila).  Next weekend’s collection for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) provides funding for groups that create lasting change and uplift the poor in the United States. In the last five years, over 36% of CCHD’s grants have gone toward advancing education, supporting economic development, and improving housing in low-income neighborhoods. You can help participate in this tradition today. Please use your preprinted envelopes or mark your contribution accordingly.
