Verse Three:
"And where is that band who so vauntingly swore, that the havoc of war and the battle's confusion, a home and a country would leave us no more?
Their blood has washed out their foul footstep's pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave from the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave.
But the Star-Spangled Banner in triumph doth wave, o'er the land of the free and the home of the brave."
Verse Four:
"Oh thus be it ever when free men shall stand, between their loved homes and the war's desolation.
Blessed with victory and peace, may this Heaven-rescued land, praise the power that has made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just, and this be our motto, in God is our trust.
And the Star-Spangled Banner in triumph shall wave, over the land of the free, and the home of the brave."
"Man was created to praise, reverence and serve God and by this means to save his soul.” 
“That is the great truth behind all human existence.” Fr. Walter J. Ciszek, S.J., ( 23 years in the Soviet Gulag) with Fr. Daniel Flaherty, S.J., He Leadeth Me, p114   

The only thing wrong with the
world is that we do not see
what is right with the world, that is;
God is in total control:
"Tell the just that all is well"
Isaiah (3:10)
"The simple fact is that humanity is totally meaningless unless God is its total concern. Then humanity, made holy with God’s own holiness, becomes the most precious creation of God." Franciscan Media

"Pray, hope and don't worry. Worry is useless. God is merciful and will hear your prayers. Prayer is the best weapon we have. It is the key to God's Heart."
Padre Pio 
“Victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be; for without victory there is no survival.”
Winston Churchill
