Philippines: Remembering Deceased Mill Hill Missionaries
Over the days of the 1st and 2nd of November families, relatives and friends will visit the graves of their loved ones all over the Philippines.
Traditionally, flowers will be laid, candles burnt and even food will be left at the graveside. Many will stay all night, keeping vigil, in prayer, while enjoying each others’ company.
So many of our Mill Hill Missionary colleagues are laid to rest here in the Philippines; on Negros Island, in Antique Province and in Iloilo City, especially in Tanza Cemetery which now stands within the metropolis of Iloilo City.
I took the opportunity to visit our good men’s final resting place in Tanza, Iloilo. My prayer for their eternal repose included a prayer of thanksgiving for their inspiring example.
May they and all the faithfully departed rest in peace.
