In November we remember and pray for our beloved dead

We are all part of the communion of saints. “We believe in the communion of all the faithful of Christ, those who are pilgrims on earth, the dead who are being purified, and the blessed in heaven, all together forming one Church; and we believe that in this communion, the merciful love of God and his saints is always (attentive) to our prayers.”  #962, Catechism of the Catholic Church

So this month we particularly remember those who have gone before us. We pray for them and ask them to pray for us.

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them.  May they rest in peace.  May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.  Amen.

RSS Bishop Swain’s Column

  • Be grateful for the blessings we enjoy
    As I have grown older, November has become among my favorite months even though it is the entryway into winter. That was not always the case. Tailgating before Wisconsin Badger football games in November was not as much fun as on warmer days. But what November has become for me is a time of recognition […]

RSS Fr. Mike’s Column

  • Growth and change, day by day
    A few weeks ago I drove to Brookings for the annual Hobo Day festivities. This has become something of an annual tradition, and because of that, certain rituals and routines have arisen. I tend to park in the same place, stop in at the Newman Center on my way to the parade, watch the parade […]
