Carmelite Quote

From the writings of St. Raphael Kalinowski:

Tomorrow is November 2, the day of the faithful departed. When I was still a boy, I dreamed I would die on All Souls Day. Whether I die on that day or not, no matter what happens, I still confess it is always good. Then I salute you cordially, and I ask you, come what may, to say a De Profundis for my soul.

(From a letter to his friend, Fr. Nowakowski)

(St. Raphael's dream came true, in a way.  He died on November 15, the feast of All Souls of Carmel.)

Peace be with you!
Rosemarie, ocds
