Pray for Veterans of D-Day


#1

Today, the 65th anniversary of Operation Overlord, the Allied invasion of France, is a good reminder that we should always keep these brave men in our prayers.

Thousands died on that day, and tens of thousands more would die before Nazi Germany was finally destroyed.

Let us pray for those dwindling few survivors, and for the souls of their fallen comrades.

Psaml 91, Douay-Rheims:

  1. 90:1 The praise of a canticle for David. He that dwelleth in the aid of the most High, shall abide under the protection of the God of Jacob.
  2. 90:2 He shall say to the Lord: Thou art my protector, and my refuge: my God, in him will I trust.
  3. 90:3 For he hath delivered me from the snare of the hunters: and from the sharp word.
  4. 90:4 He will overshadow thee with his shoulders: and under his wings thou shalt trust.
  5. 90:5 His truth shall compass thee with a shield: thou shalt not be afraid of the terror of the night.
  6. 90:6 Of the arrow that flieth in the day, of the business that walketh about in the dark: of invasion, or of the noonday devil.
  7. 90:7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand: but it shall not come nigh thee.
  8. 90:8 But thou shalt consider with thy eyes: and shalt see the reward of the wicked.
  9. 90:9 Because thou, O Lord, art my hope: thou hast made the most High thy refuge.
  10. 90:10 There shall no evil come to thee: nor shall the scourge come near thy dwelling.
  11. 90:11 For he hath given his angels charge over thee; to keep thee in all thy ways.
  12. 90:12 In their hands they shall bear thee up: lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
  13. 90:13 Thou shalt walk upon the asp and the basilisk: and thou shalt trample under foot the lion and the dragon.
  14. 90:14 Because he hoped in me I will deliver him: I will protect him because he hath known my name.
  15. 90:15 He shall cry to me, and I will hear him: I am with him in tribulation, I will deliver him, and I will glorify him.
  16. 90:16 I will fill him with length of days; and I will shew him my salvation.
