The Faithful Departed

Today's Mass and liturgies are dedicated to special prayer for the faithful departed, remembering in a special way our relatives, friends, benefactors, and brethren who have died. For these departed "life is changed, not ended;" they have entered the great mystery of Christ's resurrection. As we beg the Lord in prayer to draw all the faithful departed to himself, we remember our love for them and our connectedness with all those who have gone before us in faith.
