"When we love, we remember; and this memory, the effect of love, is not a barren thought. It resolves itself into deeds for the loved one. Why, when sorrow is united with faith, should not our sad memories resolve themselves into sentiments sweet and precious to the soul? To recall the features, the accents, the manners, and the sentiments of a loved one is still to see him, to hear him, to touch him, and to associate him with the joys and sorrows which he formerly shared." - Gergeres
"O God, the Lord of mercies, grant to the souls of Thy servants and handmaids, an abode of refreshment, the beatitude of rest, and the brightness of light."
- Collect from Second Mass
