On this Memorial Day let us remember all of those people, past and present, who have given us the greatest sacrifice; their life, so that we may have freedom and security.
Chris Tomlin’s song, “I Will Rise”, inspires me today as I imagine the words of the song as the words of those gone before us. I hope this song inspires you too.
Let us pray the words of the psalmist: (psalm 130 of the Catholic Bible)
1Out of the depths I have cried to You, O Lord.2Lord, hear my voice!Let Your ears be attentiveTo the voice of my supplications.3If You, Lord, should mark iniquities,O Lord, who could stand?4But there is forgiveness with You,That You may be feared.5I wait for the Lord, my soul does wait,And in His word do I hope.6My soul waits for the LordMore than the watchmen for the morning;Indeed, more than the watchmen for the morning.7O Israel, hope in the Lord;For with the Lord there is lovingkindness,And with Him is abundant redemption.
