This morning's Mass at Mt. St. Mary's Abbey was postponed because Sr. Damian died, yesterday. It was a blessing because she had been suffering physically for a couple of years. Now she's free of pain.
I've been meditating on death and suffering all day. Then I read the following:
"Cindy Winters eulogizes her husband, Rev. Fred Winters, who was shot dead in his church while delivering his Sunday sermon, at his funeral, at First Baptist Church in Maryville, Ill., Friday March 13, 2009. "On Sunday, my husband did not die .... He just simply got a promotion," Cindy Winters said in her eulogy."
Don't you love her "...my husband did not die...He just simply got a promotion."
May God have mercy on their souls and on the souls of those who have no one to pray for them.
