Verbum Dei Manila Pasig Holds Special Rosary for Departed Love Ones, with the Theme “Finish the Race with Grace”
With the closure of cemeteries from October 29 no November 4, 2020 due to the pandemic, Verbum Dei Manila Pasig held a special rosary to commemorate All Souls Day on November 2, 2020. The rosary was dedicated to the souls of the dearly departed relatives and friends. About 65 participants, from the community as well as friends from all over the Philippines, joined the rosary.
As we give thanks to our loved ones who have passed on the gift of faith, and in sharing memories of tears and laughter together, we were also invited to reflect on how we will want to finish our race - with grace, or regrets? Mary’s life is an example of someone who ran the race with grace. Every action she took was a response to God’s call, every step was a step entering eternal life, drawing closer in her relationship with God, so much so that she was chosen to make flesh the gift of eternal life, Jesus himself.
As St Catherine of Siena stated, “every step to heaven, is heaven.” May our every step and action always be in the direction to heaven here on earth, may it be a step in deepening our relationship with Jesus who gives us the gift of Eternal life, that is our joy and happiness! And ss Jesus tells us “Today, you will be with me in Paradise!” We don’t have to die first to experience this!
Bible verses and prayer intentions were incorporated in the rosary to provide participants time to reflect and pray for one another especially during these challenging times. Participants were requested to send in advance the names of the loved ones whom they requested prayers for and these were shown towards the end of the rosary.
Verbum Dei Manila Pasig holds regular rosary every Tuesdays and Thursdays.
