This morning we visited the cemetery for our 11th annual All Souls' Day Mass. Our oldest son has been serving for this special Mass every year since he was 6 years old. This year was the first year our oldest three boys all served this Mass together. This is one of the ways our family remembers and prays for the dead during this month dedicated to the Holy Souls.

Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Most Precious Blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the Masses said throughout the world today, for all the holy souls in purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal church, those in my own home and within my family. Amen.
