Holy Week

Holy Week has usually been a hard time for me. I lost my mother on Holy Thursday in 1997 and my father a few years later. Both of their deaths caught me by surprise and because I was very close to my mother I struggled with Easter time for a number of years. I've come a long way since then.

After Mass tonight my youngest son asked if he could light a candle for my dad. So he and I said a prayer and lit a candle. He lit one for my father and I lit one for my mother. Happy Easter Mom and Dad.
