Today, 19th November, marks the third death anniversary of my paternal grandmother (1923-2004). She was a devout Catholic in life, and prayed the holy rosary morning, noon, and night, and read Scripture at every moment she can. In life she was a brilliant teacher, having founded a Catholic school in their neck of the woods, which remains, to this day, a bright light in their area. Your prayers would be especially appreciated-- of the holy souls in purgatory, it is written that they shall plead for us before the Divine Tribunal in the hour of despair. It is a good and wholesome thing to pray for the dead.
