FROM THE PASTOR'S DESK
In 1918 on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, a cessation of hostilities was signed to end World War I which was called the war to end all wars because it was one of the deadliest conflicts in history. It was so bad that citizens of the world said war should never be allowed to happen again.
Perhaps coincidently, November 11th is the feast of Saint Martin of Tours born in the 300’s. He was a soldier named after Mars, the god of war. Early in life he had a conversation in which Jesus appeared to him disguised as a beggar. Soon after that he declared: “I am a soldier now for Christ. I cannot fight.”
One of the reasons we remember Martin is because his life represented a shift from war to peace. After world War I ended, President Roosevelt established November 11th as a national holiday to honor a transition from war to peace. The holiday was named Armistices Day and eventually was named Veterans Day. On this day, we give thanks to the men and women of our military who now sacrifice and those who sacrificed in the past so that we may live in freedom.
Veterans Day is also a day to ask God to help us as an individual and as a country to move from conditions of conflict and hatred to the peace God calls us to embrace. That is the best way we can honor our veterans. We are called by God to be peacemakers in our world and in our communities by being good citizens who respect each other and are willing to sacrifice and help all in need.
Thanks to our Veterans for their heroism and love of our country. We salute you and give thanks to God for each of you.
God bless you. Father Tom
