Dominican Anniversary of Deceased Parents

7 FEBRUARY 2010. Today the Dominican Order recognizes on its calendar the anniversary of deceased parents.
In this celebration we remember our parents who have preceded us with the sign of faith and rest in peace. The Dominican Family joins together to honor our deceased parents with the same affection we showed them in life, for in Christ they gave us birth and showed us what it means to be followers of Christ.
 Today I pray for my grandparents, Rosalie and Joel, and Evelyn and Ernest. Praise be to God, my parents, Sharon and Roy, are in good health and doing well.

Let us join our prayers today for all parents and grandparents who have been born into eternity before us.


O God, 
who hast commanded us to honor our father and our mother; 
in Thy mercy have pity on the soul(s) of N.
and forgive them their trespasses; 
and make me to see them again in the joy 
of everlasting brightness. 
Through Christ our Lord.
