Centurio Epistula - Veterans and Martin & Mennas [11 Nov]

A salute to all veterans and their families today. In the United States communities will be pausing to remember veterans, and I encourage you to attend a community event.

Today the Order remembers two Christians who wore the uniform of their nation and served Christ faithfully and with distinction

* Martin of Tours - November 11th

* Mennas, Legionary & Martyr November 11th

Several months ago I shared an article with the Order about Imprecatory prayer

I recalled General Patton's Third Army prayer as he went into theWWII Battle of the Bulge in France. Our Praefectus Castrorum forwarded this prayer to me recently. Please join with me in praying today forour veterans, especially those of the Order who are in harms way:

Almighty and most merciful Father, Lord of Hosts, founder of every righteous battle, the giver hope to David, even the slayer of the Philistines; we humbly beseech Thee, of Thy great strength, to strike fear into the hearts of our immoderate foes, with which we lately do contend; speed our fingers to the fight and our arms to strike the enemy; send fair weather, clear heads, sharp thoughts, and humble hearts for Battle; Graciously hearken to us as soldiers who call upon Thee; that, armed with Thy power, we may advance from victory to victory, and crush the oppression and wickedness of our enemies. And should, in the heat of battle, some are called to thy bosom, meet them at the cross and lift them up forever, as those who go on establish Thy justice among contentious, ancient, and falsely led nations. Amen
