One of the standard activities of a visit to our place in Yonkers is a trip to the friars' cemetery to remember and pray for our dead.
This is the section where the friars have been buried since I joined the Capuchins. When I was a postulant we were on the back row. A few others who have died since then are buried elsewhere.
I prayed a special gratitude for those friars who had been ministers of the mercy of God for me in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. That is to say, my confessors.
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord
And let perpetual light shine upon them.
Requiescant in pace.
