M  000  000  000

Begin with:
Dear God, through the intercession of our patron, Saint Florian, have mercy on the souls of our comrades who have made the supreme sacrifice in the performance of their duty, and on all who have gone before us after years of faithful discharge of their responsibilities which now rest on ourselves.  Give us Grace to prepare each day for our own summons to Your tribunal of justice.  Into Your hands O Lord, I commend my spirit. Wherever You call me, I am ready to go.  Merciful Father of all men, save me from all bodily harm, if it be Your will, but above all, help me to be loyal and true, respectful and honorable, obedient and valiant.
Thus fortified by virtue, I shall have no fear, for I shall then belong to You and shall never be separated from You.  Amen.
For each set:
Our Father...
Hail Mary...  
Glory be...
