On this day, when we mark the centennial of the Armistice that finished the Great War, we recollect before God all who kicked the bucket in that and the Second World War and in the numerous universal clashes since 1945.
With thanksgiving we review the administration people offered and the penances they made. We recollect before God all individuals, in the non military personnel and furnished administrations and at home, who kicked the bucket, or who today endure the impacts of battle. We review with contrition the damaging impacts of war on people, their families and their countries. We appeal to God for when such penance may never again be required.
We say thanks to God for the opportunities we appreciate. What’s more, we ask that people may consistently be discovered who serve the extraordinary reason for equity and harmony. We devote ourselves again this day to building a world wherein prosper charitableness and temperance.
