Αἰωνία ἡ μνήμη

February 11, 2008

My cousin Maureen died yesterday. For those of you who prayed for her during her last illness, many thanks; I believe your prayers did much good. She seemed, during these last few months, more at peace with herself and with those around her than I’d seen her for many years. I last visited her a couple of weeks ago, and she still seemed, at that point, quite lucid and responsive to people; she was eating well and was beginning to take an interest again in books. Apparently her condition deteriorated quite rapidly after that, so that I was surprised yesterday when my aunt called and told me that Maureen had died that morning in her sleep. The funeral is on Wednesday; I will be driving up to Boston tomorrow.

May Christ our true God establish the soul of his handmaid Maureen, departed from among us, in the dwelling-places of the righteous; may he grant her rest in Abraham’s bosom, and number her among the just, and have mercy upon us, as he is good and loves mankind.
