Prayer For The Dead
Life is but a stopping place,
a pause in what’s to be,
a resting place along the road,
to sweet eternity.
We all have different journeys,
different paths along the way,
we all were meant to learn some things,
but never meant to stay…
Our destination is a place,
far greater than we know.
For some the journey is quicker,
for some the journey is slow.
And when the journey finally ends,
We hope to claim a great reward,
and find an everlasting peace,
together with the lord.

Reflection for the 2nd World Day of the Poor
“The poor evangelize us and help us each day to discover the beauty of the Gospel. Let us not squander this grace-filled opportunity. On this day, may all of us feel that we are in debt to the poor, because, in hands outstretched to one another, a salvific encounter can take place to strengthen our faith, inspire our charity and enable our hope to advance securely on our path towards the Lord who is to come.”
