October is the Month dedicated to the Rosary.
It would be nice to say the Rosary together as a family one evening.

Amen.

Jesus, dear Savior, on this day we prayerfully remember all our loved ones who have died.Please give them comfort and hope and may they be at peace, knowing that they will rest in God's arms eternally.Thank you for our memories of them and for all the good times we shared. We ask You, please, through their intercession, to deepen our faith, strengthen our hope and increase our love that we, too, may someday stand before You, ready to enter Your Holy Kingdom. Amen.
