It is 101 degrees in Richmond Hill today and we had a Requiem Mass in the UR Form. It was for a parishioner who was born in Richmond Hill and a member of one of the three Catholic families here who in 1955 pruchased the Martha and Mary Chapel from the Ford Foundation and founded St. Anne's Mission. She and her deceased husband were the first to have a wedding there in 1955:
May her memory be eternal. Vechnaya jej pamyat.
I hope others will follow my lead and offer a prayer for the blessed repose of the deceased. A critique of any sort in this particular context is unnecessary.
