All Souls' Day
My father passed away this morning at 2:00 AM. His death was peaceful and holy. We were praying a rosary as he passed . He bore his sufferings so well; never once in these past two months did he complain about his pain or his cross. He offered up his sufferings for all those who prayed for him, as is befitting a faithful member of the body of Christ. I know he must be so happy now. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed rest in the peace of God and see for all eternity the face of God.
