All Souls’ Day
“Suppose that God wishes to fill you with honey; but if you are full of vinegar, where will you put the honey?” – St. Augustine
Today is All Souls’ Day. All the brothers and priests will go to a nearby cemetery and pray for those who have gone before us. We are conscious that at the end of their lives some vinegar may still remain; further purification is still needed. Catholics call this “Purgatory.”
Today say a prayer for your loved ones who have gone before you.
