Honouring All Souls

By Consuelo (Chit) E. Munar

Happy are those who have died in the Lord. Let them rest from their labours for their good deeds go with them. (Revelation 14.13)

Christians have prayed for the dead since the early Church. Monastic foundations during the 7th century reserved November 2 as the day for the commemoration of all the faithful departed. We pray for deceased members and benefactors.

Death is always a tragedy that nothing becomes ever the same. Most of us have experienced the death of a loved one. The reality of death often times play an instrumental role in bringing us to faith and to the grace of God. Sometimes God works through the death of someone in a special way.

How do we honour our departed loved ones? Different cultures have different ways of remembering and honouring their dead family members, friends and relatives. A common ritual is simply visiting the burial site and lighting a candle. Others would decide to gather, pray together, talk about the loved ones for a day or evening of remembrance.

Many people choose to honour the deceased by making a monetary donation to a cause that is meaningful to the loved one or by establishing a new fund. If a loved one personally used to support a charity, family members, friends and relatives could donate to the same charity.

Some people feel they can honour the deceased when they complete tasks they know the deceased cared about. Activities can include from completing repair projects to gathering photos from family members to finishing a scrapbook the loved one was working on.

Also, in the month of November, Remembrance Day is celebrated. We acknowledge the courage and sacrifice of those who served their country and acknowledge our responsibility to work for the peace they fought hard to achieve.

On November 11, Poppy Day, wear a poppy to honour many war veterans who fought and gave their lives in the First and Second World Wars. With gratitude we give thanks to all brave souls that gave their lives so that we may continue to enjoy the liberty and freedoms that we sometimes take for granted today.
