Today is Veterens Day. Given some of the military operations of the last 12 years or so, it can sometimes be hard to appreciate soldiers like we should. Some even take the “Universal Soldier” line and hold them just as accountable for unjust wars and occupations as our political leaders.
The thing to remember though is that on occasion evil men DO arise and need to be dealt with by soldiers. Standing armies can be abused by those in power, but they are still needed. The fact that they might be called upon to fight in a war or operation that they themselves do not believe in is just one of the many sacrifices that soldiers make when they put themselves, and their own families aside to work on behalf of a larger cause.
So thank you Veteran’s and Soldiers for doing what you do.
So I pray today for the Soldiers.
May the most Holy IAO shine his limitless light upon you.
May his Archangel METATRON make clear your path through the most HOLY LIVING CREATURES
May RATZIEL conduct you carefully through the WHEELS of the Chariot
May TZAPHKIEL watch over you from the appointed THRONES
May TSADKIEL care for you through the BENIGNLY BRIGHT ONES
May KHAMMAEL cleanse corruption through the BURNING ONES
May MICHAEL keep you balanced through the MIGHTY MESSENGERS
May AURIEL encourage you through the TRUE IMMORTALS
May RAPHAEL instruct you through the CHILDREN OF GOD
May GABRIEL enliven you through the STRONG ONES
May SANDALPHON enable you to perform your duties through SOULS OF FIRE
In the name of the Wisdom
and the Love
and the Justice
of the one Eternal Spirit
