Anniversary of Deceased Parents

7 FEBRUARY 2012. Today the Order of Friars Preachers remembers deceased parents. The Dominican supplement to the Liturgy of the Hours provides this short introduction:
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 from the crib they showed us what it means to be followers of Christ.

Loving Father,
today we honor our deceased parents
and we ask you to give them
light, happiness and peace.
Strengthen our hope and faith
in our promised future with you.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.


ALTERNO: Email me the names of your deceased parents (acta.sanctorum.blog@gmail dot com); I will be collecting the names through the end of Thursday. On Friday I will remember each of your parents in praying the Office of the Dead.
