We Remember ...

November 11, 2017

St. Francis students and staff gathered at Canadian Martyrs parish to honour those who have fought for the freedom that we appreciate today.

 

In Fr. Vincent's homily, he emphasized that we have many freedoms that we sometimes take for granted:

"We are free to come to church and worship, express opinions and views; we are free to choose what we want to be when we grow up; we are free to choose where we want to lie; we are free to choose most of the things that affect our daily lives.  For all this, and much more, we should be thankful for the sacrifice of those who have laid down their lives for us and fought for our freedoms.... but the greatest freedom that we have is the freedom that we have in Christ Jesus....  Instead of death, we have been given eternal life....  So, we are called to remember.  And we are also called, all of us, to be peacemakers."

 

 

 

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me bring love.
Where there is offense, let me bring pardon.
Where there is discord, let me bring union.
Where there is error, let me bring truth.
Where there is doubt, let me bring faith.
Where there is despair, let me bring hope.
Where there is darkness, let me bring your light.
Where there is sadness, let me bring joy.
O Master, let me not seek as much
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love,
for it is in giving that one receives,
it is in self-forgetting that one finds,
it is in pardoning that one is pardoned,
it is in dying that one is raised to eternal life.
