Help for those in need, in memory of your loved ones
Praying for the dead, particularly on the Day of the Dead on 2 November, is an act of love that hastens our loved ones’ path to heaven.
Celebrating the memory of a loved one with an act of charity towards others is an act of love to perpetuate their life because our love towards others perpetuates the lives of loved ones who have left us.
It celebrates the Lord’s love for his children.
“Dear friends, the Solemnity of All Saints and the Commemoration of all the faithful departed tells us that only those who can recognize a great hope in death, can live a life based on hope. If we reduce man exclusively to his horizontal dimension, to that which can be perceived empirically, life itself loses its profound meaning. Man needs eternity for every other hope is too brief, too limited for him. Man can be explained only if there is a Love which overcomes every isolation, even that of death, in a totality which also transcends time and space. Man can be explained, he finds his deepest meaning, only if there is God. And we know that God left his distance for us and made himself close. He entered into our life and tells us: “I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and whoever lives and believes in me shall never die” (Jn 11:25-26).
This year, you can remember your loved ones by supporting an initiative of the Athaeneum Chaplaincy:
the solidarity Christmas lunch dedicated to people in need.
By supporting this project with a memorial donation,
the memory of our loved ones will give a moment of joy to those in need.0/
We will send a letter to the family of the deceased person, thanking them for the donation in memory of their loved one and sharing a prayer. Simply write it at the time of the donation or let us know by phone or email.
Your memory, a gift for others.
