Today November 22, 2013 our nation remembers the tragic event of fifty years ago when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas. Catholics remember him as the only Catholic to have held the office of President of the United States.
During the month of November, it is the custom of the Church to remember in a special way the souls of the departed. In so doing we are reminded that burying and praying for the dead is a work of mercy.
Eternal Rest grant unto him O Lord and let Perpetual Light shine upon him. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the Mercy of God, Rest in Peace. Amen
