Dear Friend of the Sacred Heart,
You and I often speak of our “loss” when a loved one dies.
Although we do lose their physical presence in our lives, our loved ones are never truly lost. They are with God – and God is love.
Our faith assures us that love overcomes even death. The enduring bonds of love unite us and join us with our loved ones in the Communion of Saints.
It is good for us to recall with gratitude our loved ones with whom we have shared our life and history. Yes, we may still experience the sadness of their passing, even after many years. But we should also treasure the joy we had in their presence and the roles they played in our lives.
Each day throughout the month of November the Priests of the Sacred Heart will celebrate a special All Souls Mass, recalling the lives of our departed loved ones and all those recommended to our prayers. We would be honored to remember those dear to you in these special Masses and in our daily prayers.
I invite you to send me the names of those you have lost in death (click here) this past year or any year, as well as anyone you would like us to pray for during November.
As we recall and pray for our deceased loved ones, let us honor their memory by remembering the needs of the poor and less fortunate, especially those served by the Priests of the Sacred Heart in our missions in the United States and around the world.
Your help is needed greatly today to sustain our ministries among the poor and needy and to care for our own elderly and retired priests.
Any gift you can offer in faith, whatever you can afford at this time, will make a difference in the lives of those we serve.
May the Sacred Heart of Jesus bless you with an abiding faith in His promise of eternal life. May Jesus the Lord grant you and your loved ones His lasting peace and comfort all those who mourn.
Sincerely in the Sacred Heart,
Father Dominic, SCJ
