My brother has been in Iraq for less than a week now. He’s not Catholic and has never been baptized. His wife is a non-practicing Catholic. He is a Navy Coreman but with all of the car bombings and such, nobody is safe there. I pray for his safe return and hope for his conversion to God.September 15, 2004 at 12:38 pm #3377
I will pray.
I had a friend who was over there for a year and thankfully he made it back alive.
What kind of work (or unit) is your brother in over there?September 16, 2004 at 3:11 am #3382
Well, as a coreman (don’t know if I’m spelling this right), he is assigned to a Marine division as their medic. Right now he’s assigned to gear duty (not sure what that is) and says he is board which is good news i guess. I’ve also made petitions to St Judus of Thadeaus for his safe return. My brother was given a gold metal of that saint from his father-in-law and I’ve asked for St Judus’s intercession.October 24, 2004 at 12:40 am #3487
I will be praying for him in Iraq too. ” title=”Very Happy” />October 25, 2004 at 11:49 pm #3493
My brother is MP in the Army. He was just sent to Germany, the stepping stone to Iraq. Please pray for his safety.October 27, 2004 at 3:41 pm #3503
Peace be with you all!
As a Marine, once a Marine always a Marine, the Corpsman were your best bud! You took extra-special care of them. In Desert Storm our Corpsman was probably safer then most people in there beds ” title=”Smile” />.
I will add both servicemen to my prayer list. For they are the tip of the Sword of Freedom. If I could request a prayer for my nephew, he is in Iraq and was one of 5 victims of a car bombing 3 weeks ago. Daniel is fine and has returned to his unit with scares and a warrior’s spirit! His friend on the other hand was badly injured and is just now returning to the States.
[i:19uqurkj]”I pray all that so serve to protect our way of life are granted wisdom, peace, and courage to do what they must and return home to the ones that love them. Further, that if they are called home to Our Father, they are prepared to go and that the grief of their families is eased by the knowledge that they did what they were called to do and that their sacrifice was to protect the weak, our nation, and the safe future of our world. – AMEN”[/i:19uqurkj] [i:19uqurkj][u:19uqurkj]Fred Stemp[/u:19uqurkj][/i:19uqurkj]
