During this month of November we remember with love all those who have died

'De mortuis nil nisi bonum' ~Old Latin Phrase

The above phrase translates as 'say nothing but good about those who have died.' The same phrase goes back many hundreds of years but one that is full of wisdom and insight. As we continue to remember those who have died during this month of November, we are encouraged to think only of their goodness and love.

Is this not hypocritical? Not so. If we are made in the image of God then God's goodness and love can be seen in every human person. By concentrating on their goodness we are in some way connecting with God's love and goodness. Remembering and praying for our loved ones who have died can be sad and lonely. But it can also give us encouragement to keep going and especially when we miss them the most. Their goodness and love becomes our inspiration.
