Memorial Day

"Who then shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation? or distress? or famine? or nakedness? or danger? or persecution? or the sword?
(As it is written: For Thy sake we are put to death all the day long. We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.)
But in all these things we overcome, because of Him that hath loved us.
For I am sure that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor might,
Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord"
--.Romans 8:35-39 (Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition)

Queenship of the Blessed Virgin Mary

"O Queen of the world, most worthy Mary, virgin perpetual, intercede on behalf of our peace and safety, thou who didst bring forth Christ the Lord, the Saviour of us all."

--from the Mass of Our Lady Virgin and Queen
