Holy Spirit, Divine Connector of All-
As our hearts continue to remember the saints long after yesterday, they ache as they wish for one more day with their loved one.
Many souls are wandering around our world in deep grief, hoping one day to embrace the comfort that only comes from you. Many souls feel less complete without their loved ones, and loneliness overwhelms their spirits.
We know you are taking care of the souls on that side of heaven with you, the ones abiding in your love and light. Spirit of Comfort, find ways to share your peace with the souls here on earth, the ones wondering if tomorrow will be better.
May your love comfort our hearts when we find ourselves in the nighttime of our grief.
