Visiting a Graveyard

May perpetual light shine upon the faces of all who rest here.

May the lives they lived unfold further in spirit.

May all their past travail find ease in the kindness of clay.

May the remembering earth mind every memory they brought.

 May the rains from the heavens fall gently upon them.

May the wildflowers and grasses whisper their wishes into light.

May we reverence the village of presence in the stillness of this silent field.

                                                                                                  J O’Donohue.

November envelopes for names and offerings for Masses for the Holy Souls are available in the Churches
