In this month of November, Catholics all over the
world remember those who have died and gone before us “marked with the sign of faith”.
This year is particularly poignant because so many
people lost their lives because of the Corona virus. We remember our fellow
Jesuits, our mission partners and all our relatives and friends.
The Gospel gives us hope and that hope does not
disappoint because the love of God has been poured into our hearts by the Holy
Spirit (Romans 5:5). Even in the midst of pain and grief, God’s love can touch
us. God’s power can heal us. God’s strength can console us.
May all our loved ones who have passed on, especially those who have
died in the past year, rest in peace.
