The day began with Eucharistic Liturgy. The morning’s offertory was for the Archdiocese of the Military. A color
guard of four military men in uniform, two with rifles, two with flags, entered. The gathering sang “The Star Spangled
Banner” and “America the Beautiful” as the clergy processed, mostly in white. National Chaplain Father Ed Lamp said, “I
love the part of ‘America the Beautiful,’ that says ‘God Shed his Grace on Thee,’ and then Father spoke of the terrible
shooting in Colorado.
