From today’s Mass readings:
The souls of the just are in the hand of God, and no torment shall touch them. They seemed, in the view of the foolish, to be dead; and their passing away was thought an affliction and their going forth from us, utter destruction. But they are in peace. Those who trust in [God] shall understand truth, and the faithful shall abide with him in love. Wisdom 3:1-4, 9 (Today’s entire Old Testament reading is Wisdom 2:23-3:9)
HEY DAD! As you’re leading your family’s prayer time tonight, read the words of comfort and hope from this short verse as you pray for the souls of your family’s departed loved ones.
