Life is short, to often we don't give thought to death, especially when we're young and thing we still have a lot of years ahead of us. But when someone is taken unexpectedly and young it gives us pause. For all we know today may be our last, tomorrow may never come. In that mind we should always be prepared to meet our maker, yet how often do we think that? How often do we start our day asking "What do I want to do today if this is to be my last?"
Think about it my friends and pray for the souls of the departed.
This will have to do for now....more when I have more to post:
O God, the Creator and Redeemer of all the faithful,
grant to the souls of Your servants departed full remission of all their sins,
that through our devout prayers,they may obtain the pardon,
which they have always desired.
Who live and reign, world without end.
Eternal rest grant to them, O Lord.
(response) And let perpetual light shine upon them.
May they rest in peace.
