The Month of November

A month of remembrance of our departed who have preceded us in the pilgrimage to our Father. It is also a month to reflect on our lives – the way we journey on that pilgrimage. Do we value the gift of life? Do we find the true gift of life in the resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ? Jesus is our one and only assurance that the grave is not the last step in our journey. The love given and lived in our life is stronger than death. Remembering our departed in our prayers, may we strive to live by the law of love of God and neighbor. It is the only way to assure ourselves of a place in the eternal Kingdom of truth, peace and love.
