In communion with the rest of Christendom, SLRP commemorated All Saints' Day yesterday in its own way of honoring its dead. Respecting its dear departed parishioners, the Shrine of the Resurrection was made into a miniature Libingan ng mga Bayani. Small crosses, with the names of dead relatives and friends were planted in a designated section of the garden.
For the whole month of November, all masses will be offered for the eternal repose of their souls. We all pray for God's infinite mercy for them and that they shall one day be with God in His eternal home prepared for all. Just as the child Jesus was taken by Simeon in his arms in the temple and blessed God, we also lift our dearly departed to the Father.
" Now, O Lord, you can dismiss your servant in peace,
for you have fulfilled Your word and my eyes have seen Your salvation..."
