For the Immaculate Heart of Mary

To celebrate this feast day of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, what better tribute than a beautiful voice lifted up in her praise.

Interesting that you posted this right before you posted about Joe. He told me before he died, when we were discussing his funeral wishes, that Ave Maria was his favourite song. With tears in his eyes, asked that it be sung at his funeral. Father Herkel was there, and he took note. It turned out, however, that Ave Maria was not an appropriate song for a Requiem Mass, so Father had John-Loius sing it at the Rosary prayers the night before the funeral Mass.

It was also Joe's hope that his Requiem Mass would bring family members back to the faith, in particular to the Tridentine Mass. He told me he hoped every female would wear a head covering to the Mass, and they did! Even the Protestant members, out of respect for his wishes, covered their heads. I remember you and Kerry cutting up the black lace so that everyone would have a scarf to wear.
