Wisdom 3: 1-5
The souls of the just are in the hand of God,
and no torment shall touch them.
They seemed, in the view of the foolish, to be dead;
and their passing away was thought an affliction
and their going forth from us, utter destruction.
But they are in peace.
For if before men, indeed, they be punished,
yet is their hope full of immortality;
chastised a little, they shall be greatly blessed,
because God tried them
and found them worthy of himself.
ALL SOULS DAY is just around the corner. I admit, I feel its approach more keenly this year having lost both my husband and my father in the last few months. It is a great blessing that my trip to Medjugorje happens to include that feast day. I can’t wait to offer prayers there for all the souls Mary wants me to pray for but especially for my husband and my father.
Here is an article from the National Catholic Register about the indulgences available at this time of year.
I will try to put up one more post before leaving on Monday. I take you all with me in my heart and will pray for your intentions while there.
