My Second New Year's Resolution: Pray for Our Military Living and Dead!
Watch this lovely tribute to the veterans of World War II. My dad, a navy ensign at the start of the war who survived the attack on Pearl Harbor, was one. Son of a church organist and a musician himself (Daddy played the organ for the Catholic services at the Naval Academy when he was a student there), he would have loved this. And so I dedicate this to my dad and all those brave men and women who served in World War II and for all those who continue to serve. I resolve to pray for them at Mass and when I say my rosary during 2016. "No greater love is there than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." May we all pray for peace during 2016, the peace that comes through loving God, loving our neighbor, and doing the duties of our states in life with the help of Jesus through Mary.
