æternam habeas requiem

Laurie Cochran died this week.  Regular readers of this blog may remember her touching words to the Knights of Malta in our refectory a couple months ago.  

Laurie’s assurances come back to me this week: ‘that Mary is always with us.  That the mystery of Lourdes continues to unfold for each of us as we cross the rough seas, lakes, rivers and puddles of our own journeys…and that we cannot rush the journey that God has planned …we must accept it with quiet patience…and gratitude, knowing deep in our hearts that we are not alone.’

Chorus angelorum te suscipiat, 
et cum Lazaro quondam paupere 
æternam habeas requiem.
