All Souls

Today we think of the last things, as we marked this solemn day with our traditional procession through the cloisters and the blessing of the graves in the Abbey cemetery. The dear departed, our brethren, friends, relatives and benefactors, belong to us and we pray that the Lord Jesus will raise them up to himself. With them we belong to God in Christ; we are filled with hope because he promises us that he will raise us up with them on the last day.
