Remembrance Sunday

They shall grow not old,
as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them,
nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun,
and in the morning,
We will remember them.
Today we remember and pray for all those who gave there lives in the cause of right and freedom  in the two World Wars, and all the subsequent conflicts. We also remember their families and friends, and recall that each of these lives lost represents a tragedy for those left behind. Let us pray for the souls of these servicemen and women, that their time in Purgatory be short, and that they reach the reward of Heaven.

Requiem aeternum dona eis, Domine,
Et lux perpetua luceat eis:
Requiescant in pace.
...and, to give an idea of how each of these lost lives touches others...
