This week our Church celebrates the Feast of All Souls. It is in this Feast that we call to mind all those who have gone before us, both those known to us as well as those who are not, and as one we offer a prayer on their behalf. In this prayer we continue to lift them up to the Lord and we continue to say thank you for the Gift that they were to us their brothers and sisters.
As we celebrate this Feast I would like all of us to think of three people who we know who have died in the last year and I would like all of us to take a moment to pray for their families. In our prayer let us ask the Lord to continue to help their families know His loving embrace and our ongoing care. May we help them to know that they are not alone in their journey.
God’s continued Peace,
Fr. Yvon J. Royer
