Derek Antonio Cardinez, my brother, passed away Feb 6 2011, by drowning. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, especially those who died unexpectedly, rest in peace. Amen.

Four of my classmates have lost classmates in the last two months. I pray that God grants them mercy and that their souls have joined Him in heaven.

Eternal rest grant unto them, Oh Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

I also pray for the families as they go through the grieving process… in each case, the parent that passed was their last parent. I know only too well how hard it is to lose your last one.

For my mother Maria de Jesus Avila. May she rest in peace. She was a perfect example of the Lords love and I am thankful to have her as my mother. I love you mom and I love you Lord for blessing me with her.

For Annalisa, that she may be watching over her parents and brother from heaven.

I dedicate this post in memory of the martyr Shahbaz Bhatti who was killed because of his Catholic faith and his work on behalf of Pakistani minorities. Almighty God thank you for Shahbaz Bhatti and the wonderful example he has left all Catholics. May he now enjoy his place at the heavenly banquet and may your light shine upon him forever and ever amen.

My Mother in Law passed away unexpectedly last October. She was a loving mother, wanted to convert to Catholic Faith and start going to my Church for her husbands sake, who was a fallen-away Catholic. Now he goes every Sunday. God bless you Mom! Thank you for continuing to love us from Heaven....oh, and btw...Thanks for the Gone with the Wind DVD. :)

For my Great Great Grandfather, we finally discovered his true cause of death and discovered his final resting place in the last 2 weeks

Sé do bheatha, a Mhuire, atá lán de ghrásta,
tá an Tiarna leat.
Is beannaithe thú idir mná
Agus is beannaithe toradh do bhroinne, íosa.
A Naomh-Mhuire, a Mháthair Dé,
guigh orainn na peacaigh,
Anois agus ar uair ár mbáis. Amen.

For my Great Aunt Mary, and for all the souls posted here:

Eternal Father, I offer You the most Precious Blood of YOur Divine Son Jesus, in union with the mass being celebrated throughout the world this day, for all the holy souls in Purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal church, those in my own home and within my family. Amen.

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace.

May the most holy, most sacred, most adorable, most incomprehensible, and ununtterable Name of God be always praised, blessed, loved, adored and glorified in heaven, on earth and under the earth, by all the creatures of God, and by the Sacred Heart of Our Lord Jesus Christ in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar. Amen.

Jesus and Mary, I love You, save souls!

Jesus, Mary and Joseph.

O My Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, lead all souls into heaven, especially those in most need of Your mercy. Amen.

Jesus.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in Thee.

My Jesus, mercy.

Christ yesterday and today,
the beginning and the end,
Alpha and Omega.
All time belongs to Him,
and all the ages.
To Him be glory and power
through every age forever.
Amen.

My Mom ( Jo Ann Espino ) passed away March 10th. She was a practicing Catholic until she was too sick to go to Church. However she continued to pray and favored Our Lady of Lourdes. She had Liver Disease and died due to an infection that spread throughout her body. She was on the transplant list but was too sick to receive the liver. I ask for prayers for my Mom and prayers for her husband, children, grand-children and friends. She was a caring and loving person and will be greatly missed.
