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.

R. Amen

My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
