Tonight at mass we commemorated our loved ones who have passed and lit candles on their behalf. Their names were read aloud during communion and the litany of saints was sung. It was such a beautiful service. I wish I had a photo of our church altar because it was covered in tea lights -- each representing a loved one who had passed in 2008. Instead, I grabbed one from the church I was lucky enough to attend all summer -- St. Patrick's Cathedral. I'm sure this image doesn't do justice to the service they held today.
