Thought of the Day November 2, 2015

"Lord God, you are the glory of believers and the life of the just. Your son redeemed us by dying and rising to life again. Since our departed brothers and sisters believed in the mystery of our resurrection, let them share the joys and blessings of the life to come." (Anonymous) How providential is the Church to remind us about the many people who have gone before us in death, but not yet in full glory with God. They are in the state of purgation by the purifying fire of love. With their eyes on the prize (seeing God face to face) they happily endure this purification with expectant hope. Our love and prayers support them in this final stage of their journey, as we remember that we too may be in that process in the future.
