I am the servant of the Lord

Feb2The Angel of the Lord brought tidings to Mary, and she conceived by the Holy Spirit.
Behold I an the handmaid of Lord, Let it be to me according you your word.
The word became flesh and dwelt among us.

from The Angelus – an ancient prayer

 

† In Memoriam.

For the souls of the faithful departed especially,   . . . .

together with all those we love and see no longer.

Rest eternal grant to them O Lord
            and let light perpetual shine upon them.
