I received a note today about the recent passing away of a long-time reader and commentator here (though he hadn’t commented for a while), John C (aka acricketchirps). His wife wrote: “He was anointed and received the apostolic pardon.”

May he rest in peace.
May his soul and all the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace.

GO TO CONFESSION!
Everyone out there should think about how to provide the last sacraments for their loved ones – which might include people you don’t know well, in Christian charity – along with the Apostolic Pardon.
