The 2nd Commandment

10CommandmentsYou shall not make for yourself an idol, whether in the form of anything that is in heaven above, or that is on the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I the Lord your God am a jealous God.

Exodus 20:4-5 – nrsv

† 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.
