We will remember them…

A Requiem Mass was celebrated this morning for the dead of the First World War. We remembered in particular the members of the parish who gave their lives for freedom.

They that sow in tears
shall reap in joy.
They that now go away weeping, and beareth forth good seed,
shall come again with joy.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
We will remember them.
