LIVERPOOL CATHEDRAL CELEBRATING 50 YEARS
- A LOOK BACK AT OUR COMMEMORATIVE ISSUE
We are now in the month of November a time when we remember, in the words of the Eucharistic Prayer, ‘those who have gone before us with the sign of faith, and rest in the sleep of peace’. Our remembrance, like so many other things, will be different this year and there will be added poignancy as we remember those who have lost their lives as a result of the pandemic.
The restrictions, in place to save lives, have also meant that people have not been able to see their loved ones to say farewell and only a few of those who mourn have been able to attend funerals. Many of our November acts of remembrance will not take place and normally crowded cenotaphs will be empty on Remembrance Sunday.
Yet one thing does not change as we pray for those who have died. Our prayer, as always, will come from the heart and it is in our hearts that we will remember those we love. It is through our prayer that we can be close to them at this time.
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them.
May they rest in peace.
