Would you join me in praying the Office of the Dead for my friend, Father Carl Roos, who died on April 3rd in Indianapolis, Indiana? We can also include any other souls of the Faithful Departed. May they rest in the peace of Christ. Here is the website http://www.divineoffice.org. You may also find my blog listed under resources on the home page. A Lay Cistercian reflects on spiritual reality. I say the Invitatory at the beginning of the day, then go to “For a Man; Morning Prayer.” Both Father Carl and I thank you.
The Office for the Dead is a prayer cycle of the Liturgy of the Hours in the Roman Catholic Church, said for the repose of the soul of a deceased individual or individuals. It is the proper reading on All Souls’ Day (normally November 2) for all souls in Purgatory and can be a votive office on other days when said for a particular deceased.
