SOME GAVE ALL, SOME STILL GIVE
On September 11, 2001, our country was violated. I, Sgt. Joseph Miller, would like to offer my condolences to the victims of this violation and their families. May God's peace comfort you in your time of sadness.
As always, I offer my support to this country in bringing the people responsible to justice. We will not stand for this kind of inhumanity!
Grant, O Lord, that my own heart may be
touched, as yours is, at the passing of all souls
into eternal life. You experienced deep and
loving relationships while on earth and wept
at the death of your friend, Lazarus.
In great confidence, I pray for all my friends
and loved ones who are no longer here on this
journey of faith. I pray also for those who are
facing at this moment their own last agony.
How wonderful it is to know that I can support
and comfort them in their final moments.
When I am sad at the death of those who were
close to me, may my sadness be firmly supported
by my faith that life is merely changed not
ended, that those I love are still with me though
unseen. O Lord, increase my faith in the great
mystery of eternal life. Teach me to live each
day knowing that all here passes and that when
we leave we will travel very lightly.
May you, Lord Jesus Christ, welcome me
and all those for whom I pray into eternal life
at the moment pleasing to you.
Mary, Mother of the living, pray for us. Amen.
