Association of the Miraculous Medal
Prayer for Relatives of Service Men and Women

Grant, O Lord, to those homes from which have come our country's defenders, the peace which you alone can give.
 
Make those at home strong to meet their trials, to overcome the pain of loss, to meet bravely whatever you have in store for them.  Make them proud that they are giving their own to fight for what they think is right.

Grant that all the graces they stand in need of may be theirs, that they may serve as best within them lies. Make them see your good and gracious purpose working in all the trials which you will send upon them.

Grant that whatever sacrifices you have in store for mothers and fathers, wives and sweethearts, sons and daughters, may be as well and bravely borne as your own Immaculate Mother bore her loss at the foot of the cross.

Amen.

(Above prayer from "Soldiers' and Sailors' Holy Hour" by Fr. Connelly of Pittsburgh).


* Send your prayerful intentions to be remembered at our Lady's Shrine.
