So... blogging will be sparse in the days ahead, barring a sudden surge of renewed vim on that front (which is not exactly unheard of with me). I didn't want the Church year to end, though, without a word from my favourite father of the Church in one of his finest sermons. It is the Office of Readings for today, and so here it is: St. Augustine on the perseverance of the Christian in the world as we await the world to come: Let ...http://frdenis.blogspot.com/2014/11/sing-and-walk-onwards.html

ALIENS IN THIS WORLD - November 10, 2014 If you do not believe in the afterlife, or if you do not believe in the efficacy and friendliness of prayer for the dead, then I am not offended if you say that "Funerals are for the living, not the dead."

The reason we have funerals is not so we can make a party out of medical waste disposal. It isn't even ...http://suburbanbanshee.wordpress.com/2014/11/10/funerals-are-for-the-dead/

In the New Testament, St Paul prays for ...http://battlebeads.blogspot.com/2014/11/all-souls-day-november-2nd.html

Why Have All Saints and All Souls Day? NEW HORIZONS - November 1, 2014 ... and All Souls Day (albeit an unofficial Holy Day of Obligation) disappearing from the awareness of even practising Catholics. Sadly in some parishes including mine, the emphasis in November is about students and exams, rather than the Holy Souls.
