A Death in the Family

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

With a heavy heart, I wish to inform you that my Dad has come to his final rest and is eternally in the loving embrace of our Lord and Savior. Recently, I was able to spend some quality time with him for his 99th birthday. After receiving his final anointing from the Sacrament of the Sick, his body finally succumbed to the effects of ageing

The funeral Mass and Rite of Committal (burial) will take place this coming Saturday, September 19th. Needless to say, there will not be any postings from today (Thursday) through Monday. Prayerfully all postings will resume once again on Tuesday, September 22nd.

Take special time today to hold all those whom you hold dear in your life, and tell them that you love them – for we never know when any of us shall breathe our last. We can only entrust this gift of life and every beat of our heart to the providential Love of Almighty God.

Also, please know that I will periodically check for your individual prayer requests.

Peace and God’s blessings to each of you, †
