Missa defunctorum, or in English Mass of the Dead. (a.k.a. Requiem). In the old days, when someone died, family, friends and acquaintances of the deceased prayed for the repose of the person's soul. It was "look forward" not a look backward as are present day practices.
Go to Mass and Eucharistic Adoration. Have an active prayer life and live the faith you have been given so as to draw nearer to Jesus. Let the Sacraments nourish your life-- see, that's grace and surrender to God getting into every nook and cranny. Pray never to be separated from Him. He is the very best company of the very best quality.
Re-Pin: "Say a prayer for me, say a prayer for my family, say a prayer for my unit, say a prayer for my country" ~ Lord Jesus Christ we ask that you bless them and us. In Your Name we pray. Amen Let our country back our service men and women!
The gift of family intimacy. I love this statue of the Holy Family. It's pure love, gentleness, and joy. My sister gave us a replica of this statue when we got married, and it's one of my favorite things. Everytime I look at it, it inspires me to be as loving and giving with my family as I can.
