Holy Souls

We commemorate the loved ones who are no longer with us at this time of the year. But we must not forget those who no one remembers any more. Pope Francis reminds us that “Remembering the dead, caring for their graves and prayers of suffrage, are witness of confident hope, rooted in the certainty that death is not the last word on human fate” and the “supreme destiny” of humans, the final destination, is life in Heaven. On the day the Church commemorates the dead, we remember “those who have loved us and have done good deeds for us”. “But today we are called to remember everyone, to remember everyone, even those who no one remembers. We remember the victims of war and violence; the many "little ones" of the world crushed by hunger and poverty. We remember the anonymous who rest in common graves. We remember all those killed on our roads, all those who have died at sea. We remember our brothers and sisters killed because they are Christians; and those who sacrificed their lives to serve others. We especially entrust to the Lord, those who have left over the last year.” – We will have our own special time of remembrance in school on Wednesday 8th November in our school oratory. We hope you join us.

May the following thoughts prayers, reflections and clips bring you comfort Blessings – Sr. Marjorie
