As a community, we feel their loss in many ways: in empty seats around us, that once were filled; and most of all, obviously, by the absence of their physical presence among us. The month of November is the month of the year when the Church particularly focuses us on the dead.

Life and Death, and Football of Course! HUMBLEPIETY - November 2, 2015 ... Prayer is urgent and insistent, a cry of hope amidst the despair of the reality of death, loss and separation.
