The liturgical reform bears absolutely no relation to what is called "desacralization" and in no way intends to lend support to the phenomenon of "secularizing the world." Accordingly the rites must retain their dignity, spirit of reverence, and sacred character.

In Paradisum | Pray for Peace
published 11 September 2013 by Richard J. Clark

N THIS DAY let us pray for peace and for those who died before us. Let us pray for those who have suffered great loss and for those who suffer because they do not know the love of God.

Let us thank God for His great blessings and for His protection and guidance.

Pray unceasingly for those who protect us and watch over us each and every day. Pray for their families.

Pray always.
