Feast of All Souls  
The Church has encouraged prayer for the dead from the earliest times as an
act of Christian charity. "If we had no care for the dead," Augustine noted,
"we would not be in the habit of praying for them." Yet pre-Christian rites
for the deceased retained such a strong hold on the superstitious
imagination that a liturgical commemoration was not observed until the early
Middle Ages, when monastic communities began to mark an annual day of prayer
for the departed members.   For more, follow the link below:

The souls of the just are in the hand of God, and no torment shall touch
them. They seemed, in the view of the foolish, to be dead; and their passing
away was thought an affliction and their going forth from us, utter
destruction. But they are in peace. ~Wisdom 3:1-9

And this is the will of the one who sent me, that I should not lose anything
of what he gave me, but that I should raise it on the last day. ~John

When we die, our lives continue with God.  Our bond with those who have gone
before us remains.  We can help them with our prayers on their behalf ...
and they can help us from their place with God. We recall this on the Feast
of All Souls, and pray for those who have gone before us as we look forward
to the time when we can see God as He is, face to face.

I pray that I may keep my relationship with those who have gone before me
strong.  May their souls and the souls of all the Faithful Departed, through
the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

We pray for unity in our country and that we may build a Culture of Life. We
pray for the safety of our troops, their safe return and their families at
home.  We pray for a deep and profound respect for life, and for the courage
and willingness to stand up for life. We pray for one another, for those who
have asked our prayers and for those who need our prayers the most. Have a
good day!

May God Bless you and those you love, and keep you safe!

Father Pat
