On Sunday morning, I took my eldest son to our local church to say farewell to the Salvatorian Fathers who…are departing after 31 years of service. It was a celebration of community, one in which the living are always mindful of the dead. It was a deeply moving ceremony which reminded us that our debt to absent generations can never, in good conscience, be cancelled.~Mark DooleySource: Moral Matters, 9.10.2013
