All Souls Day...

Today being All Souls Day, I was thinking back to my days in the parish. One of the parishes I served had a very beautiful outdoor altar in the parish cemetery. Each year I took the opportunity to celebrate Mass there for All Souls, especially for those in the parish who had passed away in the previous year. Many of their family members would gather for the special remembrance. I found a few pics of it in a dusty corner of the old hard drive:

One of my favorite hymns: the "Dies Irae:"

"Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord"

It's refreshing to see altar boys. After the scandal surrounding the catholic church most of the altar boys in my town have been replaced with older male altar servers.
