Be happy and stay happy.

“We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.”

Peace to You

Peace . . .

The fruit of silence is prayer, the fruit of prayer is faith, the fruit of faith is love, the fruit of love is service, the fruit of service is peace. Mother Teresa

So at peace while with my family at the cemetery as the nation observes All Saints Day on November 1 (and All Souls' Day on November 2).

All Souls' Day is when the Church commemorates and prays for the holy souls in Purgatory.

Merciful Father,
hear our prayer and console us.
As we renew our faith in Your Son,
whom You raised from the dead,
strengthen our hope
that all our departed brothers and sisters
will share in His resurrection,
who lives and reigns
with You and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen

Eternal Rest grant unto them O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon them.
May they rest in peace.
