Monday of the Eighth Week in Ordinary Time, Memorial Day

Fr. Emil Kapaun gave glory to God by following his call to the priesthood and thus serving the people of Kansas and those in the military. Fr. Kapaun, I ask your intercession not only for these needs which I mention now … but that I too may follow your example of service to God and my neighbor. For the gifts of courage in battle and perseverance of faith, we give you thanks O Lord. (Recite one Our Father, one Hail Mary, and one Glory Be.)
