Today we honor the memory of those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. Together we pray:

God of power and mercy,
you destroy war and put down earthly pride.
Banish violence from our midst and wipe away our tears,
that we may all deserve to be called your sons and daughters.
Keep in your mercy those men and women
who have died in the cause of freedom
and bring them safely into your kingdom of justice and peace.
We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

– from "Catholic Household Blessings and Prayers."
