Stars were falling deep in the darkness
As prayers rose softly, petals at dawn
And as I listened, your voice seemed so clear
So calmly you were calling your god
-From “Full Circle” by Loreena McKennitt
This week we honour the souls who have passed.
We honour our loved ones that we ache to hold once more, and those we have never met but who also have loved ones who ache.
We honour our ancestors, those known and unknown, for all that we have, and all that we are.
Today we recognize we are part of a great cycle of being, falling and rising, part of the whole.
Our prayers rise in the darkness
We light candles for our beloved ones
We remember, remember, remember…
