On June 6, 1944, soldiers from the American, British and Canadian militaries stormed the beaches of Normandy, France and helped bring freedom back to Europe after years of tyranny and oppression under the Nazi Regime. We ask that God bless them all. We must never forget the men, their sacrifice, and their blood that drenched beaches that day.
We must always pray and give thanksgiving to all our military personnel who have served this country. Please keep in your prayers all those associated with the Archdiocese for the Military, USA.
“You are about to embark upon the greatest crusade toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon…Have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty and skill in battle.” – General Dwight D. Eisenhower
“The ardour and spirit of the troops, as I saw myself, embarking in these last few days was splendid to witness. Nothing that equipment, science or forethought could do has been neglected, and the whole process of opening this great new front will be pursued with the utmost resolution both by the commanders and by the United States and British Governments whom they serve.” – Winston Churchill
Below is a video that commemorates the D-Day Invasion. Always remember the sacrifice these brave souls gave for our FREEDOM.
