Photo of the Day: Remembering the departed

Yesterday, on All Saints' Day, we dwelt upon "the heavenly city, Jerusalem, our mother." And today, our souls turn again to these last things as we commemorate all the faithful departed, those "who have gone before us marked with the sign of faith and sleep in peace." It's very important for us Christians to live our relationship with the dead in the truth of faith, and to look at death and the afterlife in the light of Revelation.- Pope Benedict XVI, Pope Benedict XVI on Celebrating 'All Souls Day'
