For us Filipinos, All Souls Day is as important as Christmas and New Year’s Day. Yet, I can’t remember the last time when I spent these days in my hometown together with my family. This year is no different and all I can do is offer my prayers.
God our Father, we ask that you hear our prayers and bring us some consolation in our lives.
As we remember in our prayers all of our loved ones who have died, we pray that they will have received the promise of eternal life and that they are with you in experiencing the joy of heaven.
