With All My Heart

If you’ve never watched Band of Brothers before, you should. If you have, you might (like me) have a particular interest in the Siege of Bastogne. This is one of my favorite scenes from the entire series, and it takes place during that important engagement. There’s something immensely powerful in the setting – snow and ice, imposing trees, darkness – and the emotion of medic Eugene Roe’s hurried prayer. I rewound the DVD over and over the first night I watched this, trying to catch the words and soak up the entire scene. Later, I googled this prayer and found out it was a snippet of the Peace Prayer of St. Francis.
