St. Martin of Tours, Soldier & Bishop

Lord God of hosts, who didst clothe thy servant St. Martin the soldier with the spirit of sacrifice, and didst set him as a bishop in thy Church to be a defender of the catholic faith: Protect all those in military service, and with them give us grace to follow in his holy steps, that at the last we all may be found clothed with righteousness in the dwellings of peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
