Remembrance Day, 2011



THE LAST POST ["MIDI Bugle by Neville Young"]

PIPER'S LAMENT "Flowers of the Forest"

ROUSE ["MIDI Bugle by Neville Young"]

ACT of REMEMBRANCE
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.
RESPONSE: We will remember them

IN FLANDERS FIELDS
In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead.
Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

By: Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872-1918) Canadian Army

A few years ago, there was concern that we would run out of
Silver Cross Mothers for Remembrance Day Services.





Would it were true.

Scripture to keep in mind

Six things there are, which the Lord hateth, and the seventh his soul detesteth: [17] Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, [18] A heart that deviseth wicked plots, feet that are swift to run into mischief, [19]A deceitful witness that uttereth lies, and him that soweth discord among brethren. [20] My son, keep the commandments of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother. ***Cf:Douay-Rheims Proverbs 6: 16-20
