This year the college students carry on the tradition of making the cemetery visits for the first week in November. Every evening, little groups of students can be seen making the trek up and down the hill praying the rosary or chatting together. What a blessing to be able to carry out this spiritual work of mercy together with one’s classmates.
Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Most Precious Blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the masses said throughout the world today, 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.
~ The Prayer of St. Gertrude
