Lover of the poor, you sustained St. Martin of Tours in his prayer and in his living of the Gospel. In company with him we pray: Lead us along your everlasting way, O God.  

Protect military troops, and bring them safely home to their loved ones. 

Lead us along your everlasting way, O God. 

Prosper efforts to ensure adequate aid and support for military troops, veterans, and their families. 

Lead us along your everlasting way, O God. 

Break the bonds of fear, ignorance, and unjust power that fuel racism and racist thinking. 

Lead us along your everlasting way, O God. 

Our Father . . .  

May God keep a loving eye on us and strengthen us for living the corporal works of mercy, through Jesus our brother. Amen.
