Remembrance Day with Radio Maria England

Written by on 12/11/2021

This Remembrance Day, why not spend it with Radio Maria England and our podcasts from this past week?  We celebrated all of our service men and women who have passed away, for those service men and women that are still alive today and for those that are currently serving.

Our prayer throughout the week has been the same prayer that Christians all over England will be saying as part of the Order of Service for Remembrance Sunday which has been published by Churches Together in Britain and Ireland and prepared with The Joint Liturgical Group of Great Britain and The Royal British Legion.

Let us pray for all who suffer as a result of
conflict, and ask that God may give us

For the service men and women who have
died in the violence of war, each one
remembered by and known to God;

May God give peace

For those who love them in death as in life,
offering the distress of our grief and the
sadness of our loss;

May God give peace

For all members of the armed forces who
are in danger this day, remembering
family, friends and all who pray for their
safe return;

May God give peace

For civilian women, children and men
whose lives are disfigured by war or terror,
calling to mind in penitence the anger and
hatreds of humanity;

May God give peace

For peace-makers and peace-keepers, who
seek to keep this world secure and free;

May God give peace

For all who bear the burden and privilege
of leadership, political, military and
religious; asking for gifts of wisdom and
resolve in the search for reconciliation and

May God give peace

O God of truth and justice, we hold before you those whose memory we cherish,
and those whose names we will never know.
Help us to lift our eyes above the torment of this broken world,
and grant us the grace to pray for those who wish us harm.
As we honour the past, may we put our faith in your future;
for you are the source of life and hope,
now and for ever.

When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up the mountain, and after he sat down his disciples came to him. Then he began to speak, and taught them, saying: Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.  Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.  Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.  Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when people revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Matthew 5:1-12

We very much appreciated the volunteers and listeners that shared their stories and remembered with us this week.  Below are some of the highlights from the week’s programming.
