Remembering our Departed Loved Ones
REMEMBERING OUR DEPARTED LOVED ONES
The Church dedicates the month of November to the contemplation of the mystery of the Communion of Saints. In this Communion which is the charitable link with the faithful who have already reached heaven, the faithful departed who are still being purified and made ready for full union with God and of the pilgrim faithful here on earth. “In this wonderful exchange, the holiness of one profits others, well beyond the harm that the sin of one could cause others.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1475).As the celebration of Mass is the highest means the Church can provide for charity for the dead, we invite you to submit the names of your deceased parents, relations, friends and all for whom you wish to pray. These names will be inscribed in the Priory’s GoldenBook of the Holy Souls. Throughout the month of November, this book is left at the foot of the altar and your intentions are prayed for at every Eucharistic sacrifice of the Mass in the Carmelite Priory, Boars Hill, Oxford.
“We pray with Christian hope that they are with God in paradise, in the expectation of being together again in that Mystery of Love that we don’t understand, but which we know is true because it is a promise that Jesus made.” – Pope Francis
