Another All Soul's Day passed. A day when millions here in the Philippines go to cemeteries and memorials to visit the resting place of our dearly departed. The head stone pictured above is of my Dad's parents and brother. There are other head stones in our little memorial, my dad's great grand aunts, cousins, grandparents. We lit candles and laid flowers in their memory.
Eternal RestEternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
Prayer for All the DeceasedBy Thy resurrection from the dead, O Christ, death no longer hath dominion over those who die in holiness. So, we beseech Thee, give rest to Thy servants in Thy sanctuary and in Abraham's bosom. Grant it to those, who from Adam until now have adored Thee with purity, to our fathers and brothers, to our kinsmen and friends, to all men who have lived by faith and passed on their road to Thee, by a thousand ways, and in all conditions, and make them worthy of the heavenly kingdom.
...and so may all their souls rest in peace.
