Dignity, Beauty, and Honor

A beautiful cemetery in the town of Križovany nad Dudváhom, Slovakia:

And a beautiful obituary for a woman – not from Slovakia – whom I never met but wish I had:

Mary A. “Pink” Mullaney

In reading her obituary I was reminded of several people I knew in the parish whose lives were marked by a particular spirit of love and service and who, in spite of often great final suffering, had beautiful deaths.

Still, we always pray for the dead!

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
