In memoriam

"On this mountain the Lord of hosts will provide for all peoples a feast of rich food and choice wines…. On this mountain he will destroy the veil that veils all peoples, the web that is woven over all nations; he will destroy death forever."
Isaiah 25: 6-8

With gratefulness, we remember the Divine Word Missionaries of the Chicago Province who recently have gone before us.

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon them.
May they rest in peace. Amen.
