Honored Dead



Our Honored Dead

Our Dead

(by Rev. Edward Lodge Curran)


Our dead are not Unknown Soldiers. We know who they are and wither they seek to go. We know that some may languish in Purgatory until the last earthly stain is wiped away and until the last earthly injustice is repaired. We also know that we can speed their passage from a Purgatory of shadow and pain to a Paradise of Happiness and Light. Our prayers and masses and works of charity can assist our dead in gaining entrance into the blessedness of heaven. We love our dead. We can help our dead. Let us pray for them always. Flowers wither upon their graves. A daily garland of prayers is better than an armful of roses.

As we approach the Golden Memorial hour of the Catholic War Veterans, Eleven O'Clock, Stand for a moment in silence,and let there rise from your heart a prayer beseeching Almighty God, the Father of us all, to grant to the souls of our departed comrades, a peace and glory that is theirs because of the sacrifices they made that other men might live.
