Here is the offertory sung at the end of the Remembrance Day ceremony :

We offer the merits of the recitation of these Scriptures and Invocations
for all those who have suffered as a consequence of war.
May all relinquish hatred and violence and realise the Truth.
So we remember everybody because on one level or another we all suffer as a consequence of war. And the need to relinquish hatred, on one level or another, is universal too.

The wind is rattling my door tonight, great gusts of air thrash around the stone buildings. My mind is drawn to those less fortunate.
