All Souls’ Day, November 2, Pray for the Dead

2 Maccabees 12:44-45

44 For had he not expected the fallen to rise again, it would have been superfluous and foolish to pray for the dead,

45 whereas if he had in view the splendid recompense reserved for those who make a pious end, the thought was holy and devout. Hence, he had this expiatory sacrifice offered for the dead, so that they might be released from their sin.

Roman Martyrology

“On this day is observed the commemoration of the faithful departed, in which our common and pious Mother the Church, immediately after having endeavored to celebrate by worthy praise all her children who already rejoice in heaven, strives to aid by her powerful intercession with Christ, her Lord and Spouse, all those who still groan in purgatory, so that they may join as soon as possible the inhabitants of the heavenly city.”

One of my favorites was Earth Wind & Fire which I attended their concerts at the Philly Spectrum. As I became classically trained dancer at Temple University in the mid 70’s that Philly R&B was in my blood. Remembering at the Sorority house of Alpha Gamma Delta the album would go on “That’s The Way of The World.”  Brilliant reflections for my soul. Music never would have been the same without your presence.  Ty so for your inspiration Maurice White. R.I.P.
