On this mountain,
the Lord of Hosts will prepare for all peoples
a banquet of rich food, a banquet of fine wines...
On this mountain he will remove
the mourning veil covering all peoples,
and the shroud enwrapping all nations,
he will destroy Death forever.
The Lord will wipe away
the tears from every cheek...
(Isaiah 25: 6-8, from the Mass for All Souls)
When one of our sisters is called to the fullness of life,
we confide her to her Creator in our prayers
and in the celebration of the Eucharist
with hope and faith in the resurrection.
(Constitutions, para 36)
This month we remember those we love, and all those who have died in wars and conflicts around the world
