R.I.P.

Am breaking my Triduum blog silence to ask for your prayers for the repose of the soul of Carmeline D., mother of a very close friend from college. She died yesterday in Bombay, on Good Friday, after a long struggle with colon cancer. I spoke with my friend earlier: the whole family was gathered, as well as neighbors and parishioners, and they prayed with her and sang for her as she passed on into eternity. The funeral will be held on Easter Sunday.

I am very grateful that I got to spend some time with her in Bombay last month.

Christos anesti ek nekron, thanato thanton patisas ... Christ has risen from the dead, and by death has conquered death.
