366 Project - Day 347 - "Abstract (Requiescant in Pace)"


December 12, 2016 - "Abstract (Requiescant in Pace)"

An old, vintage electric candle from a Catholic church - which I purchased to use as a "Memorial Candle" for my home. It now has an LED bulb in it, and remains lit 24-hours-a-day... 7-days-a-week... 365(6)-days-a-year - in memory of all of those whom I've known and loved and lost... all of the family who has gone before me... all who have been martyred for their Christian faith... and all of the Holy Souls in Purgatory.

"Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine. Et lux perpetua luceat eis. Fidelium animae, per misericordiam Dei, requiescant in pace. Amen."

Translation: "Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord. And let the perpetual light shine upon them. And may the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen."
