So,  tomorrow, I must apply brain and get prapring for a very important sunday – a mixture of All Saints and All Souls.

Heres a peaceful scene at Little Gidding which I visited on  Wednesday. The sunlight coming through autumn trees on a single grave stone in the churchyard.

“Requiescat in pace

knarled old tree

This old tree is well past its sell by date but is home to teeming insect life and is dramatic in its demise.

  1. What a lovely blog!! I happened upon it while looking for exact words to a prayer of St. Theresa’s.

    It seems as though we have some things in common. We are the same age (I am 9/21/54), I also love churches and church buildings and I love what the C of E is in America, the Episcopal Church.

    For our All Saints Sunday, we are invited to bring pictures of our loved ones who have passed. The altar is surrounded with pictures. It is a touching site, so many quiet, anonymous, beloved saints.

    If you have time, visit our website, You can find pictures there of past All Saints Sundays.

    By the way, if you happen to visit my blog, be prepared, it is not sweet and bucolic like yours. It is irreverent and I sometimes, ok, often, use bad words. Although it can be very funny.

    At any rate, it is nice to virtually meet you and I look forward to following your posts.
