Dómine Iesu Christe, Rex glóriæ, líbera ánimas ómnium fidélium defunctórum de pœnis inférni et de profúndo lacu; líbera eas de ore leónis, ne absórbeat eas tártarus, ne cadant in obscúrum; sed signifier sanctus Míchaël repræséntet eas in lucem sanctam, quam olim Abrahæ promisísti et sémini eius.
Réquiem ætérnam dona eis Dómine; et lux perpétua lúceat eis. Requiéscant in pace.Amen.
RIP. Cardnial Edward Egan, who was tge retired NY Archbishop. I will remember always the day you confirmed me, when you where the Bishop of Bridgeport.
You gave great strength to us during 9/11 Terror Attacks.
As I grow older I miss them more and more. My daughter will be turning 16 in April and my son will be turning 15. They are what is considered Irish twins, for two weeks they are the same age.
I’ve been fighting most of their lives to have a relationship with them…with no luck, every step I take I’m pushed back three miles. So now I’ve gone into the distance and continue to pray that someday they will want a relationship, and hear the truth of what happened. It doesn’t hurt any less but it hurts less in the long run.
After my Dad died I realized that our relationship wasn’t the best and we hadn’t spoken since I was in my late teens. We only have a little time with our parents before they are gone, cherish your parents and let them know your love before its to late.
This morning while I was at work I got a call from my first-cousin on my father’s side of the family. It was not good news, the man for whom I am named died this morning around 6AM.
It has been 15 or 16 years since I last saw you…way to long. No words I can write here or thoughts I can think can bring you back and change things. I’m sorry you never got to meet my children, your grandchildren. You will be missed Dad. May you and all the souls of the faithfully departed rest in peace.
