Greetings in Jesus and Mary...
There is so much to write about and pray about right now. Things are happening at lightening speed in the world and in the Church. So much destruction and dismantling as if Satan himself was at the helm of the ship. Yes, it feels like we are on the Titanic and it is sinking quickly. We need to jump in the lifeboat of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and sail safely to the the Sacred Heart of Jesus. May we take heed of these words and consecrate ourselves and our families and pray the Rosary daily for help during these trying times in history.
The above words seems unrelated to my title but truly they are related. During these trying times, it is easy to forget our deceased loved ones. Everything is so upside down. Many families are even neglecting to get the Last Sacraments to their dying relatives because it is so uncomfortable to talk of death even when it is imminent. THIS IS WRONG! The Sacraments offer much grace and healing and will definitely help the soul prepare for death. Let us not be lax in this.
Also, let us not forget them after death. November is coming up and the "Sisters of Carmel" always offer the opportunity for us to enroll our deceased loved ones that have gone before us into the Masses offered for the dead during November. There is a minimum donation of $10 but please consider more to these sisters. This is a way to support many religious communities who offer this kind service during the month of November.
Below is a link for anyone to enroll your loved ones before October 29th. We have the next 10 days to get them on the list.
God bless your day and continue to pray your Rosary this month of October and always.
Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary, pray for us!
