On Memorial Day, we remember the men and women who died serving this nation. There is no better way for a Catholic to remember the dead than by offering Holy Mass for them.

Also, the regular Monday evening Latin Mass at St. Ignatius of Antioch will not be offered on Memorial Day.
The featured image is a tombstone from a little gem-of-a cemetery in Cleveland, Ohio….if you’re in to that sort of thing. Brookmere Cemetery is located in Old Brooklyn, on the dead-end of Broadview Rd. No pun intended. Unfortunately, the grounds are terribly maintained by the City of Cleveland. So many grave markers vandalized. It seems the dead here are long forgotten, but perfect candidates for our prayers.
