All Saints' and All Souls' Days
As with most other holidays this year, All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day traditions will undergo some tweaking because of Covid19.
We probably will still visit the graves of our beloved departed to bring flowers, but more likely not spend time with family and friends who will join us in our commemoration.
We probably will pray more to saints to celebrate their lives and to help intercede for us to Jesus during this pandemic.
But how about those souls who have no one to pray for them and those saints who no one really remembers? Maybe this year, we could pray for the unnamed souls and saints who would appreciate being remembered. Much like those who passed away quietly and very sadly during this pandemic. Those who were laid to rest without proper closure.
Maybe we can continue to add these extra prayers to our All Saints' and All Souls' prayer traditions, even after Covid is history.
