Entering the Mist and Fog
The Final Mystery
As the hour of a person's passing from this life into eternal life draws closer,
the person often enters a Mystery as one enters mist and fog;
some things recede while others become more and more important or immediate.
The heart and mind are pulled in two directions
and one experiences a multitude of emotions and uncertainties.
This is the human experience which often hides or shrouds the experience of the soul.
The world may see someone who appears weak, useless, ineffective;
someone who has lost their mind, their way.
But to the eyes of Jesus,
a faithful soul approaching death must appear very differently:
Clasped to His Heart.
Pierced by the same thorns, the same nails that pierced Him,
their blood and tears mixing with their cries
that rise up to the Father to obtain Mercy and forgiveness.
Jesus sees light and love pulsating,
radiating out of each heartbeat of that faithful soul---
making that soul more and more beautiful in His sight,
in the sight of the Angels,
in the sight of all of Paradise.

Remembering Your Loved One at the Shrine of the Holy Souls
Over the years people have asked us for a way to memorialize their loved one out here at the Mission. We asked God to show us an appropriate means and we believe that He inspired us with an approach that would allow people to not just acknowledge their loved ones and support the Mission, but help remind and encourage all visitors to the Mission of our sacred obligation to pray for the Holy Souls in Purgatory.
