Daily Intention:

Today we pray for those who courageously laid down their lives for the cause of freedom. May the examples of their sacrifice inspire in us the selfless love of Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. Bless the families of our fallen troops, and fill their homes and their lives with Your strength and peace. We also pray for the 6th and 7th grade classes as they travel to Greenfield Village today and those travelling this weekend.
