Any other parish Priests facing the same situation?
Thursday, January 08, 2009
It seems that, since January arrived, we've had funeral after funeral (sometimes two a day). For some reason, the time immediately after Christmas seems to be the time when a disproportionate amount of people die. I suppose, for Catholics, the hope and optimism that Christmas brings might be enough to get those facing death to deliberately will to "hold it off". Others, maybe, don't want to die around Christmas, so their families won't associate Christmas with their passing.
