Prayer for Veterans Day:

Father, we could never thank our military men and women enough for their courageous service and sacrifice to our country and its people. Yet today we lift up our voices to express gratefulness and honor to these military troops both from the past and present. Show us ways in our communities, churches, and families to thank and love them better. Keep and protect these heroes and their families, in the powerful name of Jesus. Amen.

Heros From Wars-plaques

O Great Saint Rocco, deliver us, we beseech you, from contagious diseases, and the contagion of sin. Obtain, for us, a purity of heart which will assist us to make good use of health, and to bear sufferings with patience. Teach us to follow your example in the practice of penance and charity, so that we may, one day enjoy the happiness of being with Christ, Our Savior, in Heaven.
O Blessed Saint Rocco,
Patron of the sick, Have pity on those
Who lie upon a bed of suffering.

Your power was so great When you were in this world,
That by the sign of the Cross, Many were healed of their diseases.

Now that you are in heaven,
Your power is not less.
Offer, then, to God Our sighs and tears
And obtain for us that health we seek
Through Christ our Lord
