We were blessed to assist at the Solemn Requiem Mass for the repose of the soul of a Mater Dei parishioner last night.  It was a great gift to be able to offer this spiritual work of mercy.

God rest his soul.  Requiescat in Pace.

Not sure how my camera caught this effect, but I liked it. There was not much smoke in the air.

I also shot this video of blessing the catafalque.

I do not think there could be any better way to be sent into eternity than through a Mass such as this.

JL’s large family may be assured of our prayers.  Already underway.  I am so sorry for your loss, and sorry I could not do more to help.

I can’t recall the last time I saw a priest in black vestments. Probably when I was a little kid. Thanks for the photos. May he rest in peace.

It broke our hearts to not be able to be there for Mary and the family, as Dennis and I are in Tampa on business. Saw them last Friday at the conference in Dallas, and Monday morning he was gone. Such a shock. Thanks for the pics, Larry.

Just another reminder…tempus fugit, memento mori. Although I have never met any of you, I will pray regardless for this friend of yours. How great it is to be Catholic and have his benefit of being able to pray for one another without knowing them personally!

May he rest in peace…
