November 2nd, All Souls Day, we pray for all who have died.
Many of us have known people that we consider to have lived lives of grace and we feel we know that they sure now among the saints. This may well be the case, but this is a day to pause and pray for all who have died: our family, our friends, and our colleagues.
Every culture has traditions around remembering those who have gone before us, and as a Church, we are united in prayer.
Elise Frederick, MDA Executive Director, shared I’ve always especially loved the way those in Cameroon refer to those who had died as “Of Blessed Memory”.
We invite everyone to submit the name of someone who is “Of Blessed Memory” .
We will add their name to the basket at the altar for Mass on All Souls Day, and the names will remain on the altar at our Mission House throughout the month of November.
