Please Pray…

For the repose of the soul of Mike Flynn’s wife Marge, who died suddenly of kidney cancer two months shy of their 50th wedding anniversary, and for comfort for Mike and all who love them. He tells the story here on his blog.

Even though we ‘know’ each other only from commenting on each other’s blogs, and, in my case, reading a good many of Mike’s novels and stories, he seems like a friend to me. The internet can be a good thing, sometimes.

Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord,
And let perpetual light shine upon her.
May her soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed,
through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

May Mother Mary and Good St. Joseph be a mother and a father to her and all who love her, and comfort and sustain Mike. Amen.

Enough with the smarty-pants Dante quote. Just some opinionated blogger dude.

  1. I know we Lutherans differ with Catholics about purgatory, but consider: Purgatory or no, Mrs. Flynn, like so many of my beloved family who have passed beyond these mortal snares, are with the Christ who redeemed her, in the arms of her Father who loves her.

    May the Comforter wrap Mr. Flynn ’round with peace and strength.
