The month of November is dedicated to the Souls in Purgatory. Is it not sad but true that the living so soon forget the dead? We forget when we live, we are forgotten when we die. “Lay my body anywhere,” pleaded the dying St. Monica with her son, St. Augustine, “only this I beg of you: remember me at the altar of God.”
I hope you enjoy the new day we set aside for prayers. Fridays. My favorite mysteries are the Sorrowful Mysteries. It reminds me that if Jesus can get through His agony, scourging, crowning with thorns, His carrying of the cross and crucifixion – we can get through anything. there’s strength in that.
