On April 15th, 1912, 1,523 souls were lost in the North Atlantic Ocean after the R.M.S. Titanic slipped into it’s watery grave at 2:20 AM. Today, we remember those who were lost and the sacrifices of the brave crew and passengers who gave their lives to save others.

Eternal Father, strong to save,
Whose arm hath bound the restless wave,
Who biddest the mighty ocean deep
Its own appointed limits keep;
Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee,
For those in peril on the sea!

O Christ! Whose voice the waters heard
And hushed their raging at Thy Word,
Who walked on the foaming deep,
And calm amidst its rage didst sleep;
Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee,
For those in peril on the sea!

Most Holy Spirit! Who didst brood
Upon the chaos dark and rude,
And bid its angry tumult cease,
And give, for wild confusion, peace;
Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee,
For those in peril on the sea!

O Trinity of love and power!
Our family shield in danger’s hour;
From rock and tempest, fire and foe,
Protect us wheresoever we go;
Thus evermore shall rise to Thee
Glad hymns of praise from land and sea.

One of the true heroes of the Titanic disaster. Marconi wireless operator Jack Phillips. At the young age of only 25 years old, Phillips worked the wireless telegraph till the water was rushing into the wireless room, sending distress calls to anyone who was awake to receive them. Even after Captain Smith relieved the men of their duty due to the power shorting out, Phillips continued sending distress calls. He managed to make it to overturned lifeboat B, but eventually died of exposure.

The R.M.S. Titanic dressed in flags for Good Friday. April 5th, 1912, as a salute to the citizens of Southampton. The only time the ship would ever be dressed.
