Merciful God, You are great in compassion and Your tenderness for us is without measure. We ask You to give us today our daily bread, and also provide for the needs of all of Your hungry children around the world. Through Christ Your Son and Our Lord. Amen.

Dia des los muerto

I switched up our menu a little bit and moved the tacos to tonight. Though we have not a drop of Mexican blood in our family, we see that the Mexican culture certainly does All Soul's Day in a big way.

We lit the vigil candles this morning, took chrysanthemums to the cemetery at noon, and we will have a big bonfire after dinner, with our Soul Cakes. I love a day in which spend time learning, in a real way, about our faith and its traditions.

Do you have plans to remember your special souls on this holy day?
