Absolve, we beseech Thee, O Lord, the soul of Thy servant Esperanza , from every bond of sin, that being raised in the glory of the resurrection, she may be refreshed among the Saints and Elect.Through Christ our Lord.
My mom Esperanza, whom I visited in Manila on October 1-4 has passed away at past ten tonight, October 16, 2008. She was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer early this year.
We who are left behind will greatly miss her.
* Please offer prayers for the eternal repose of her soul.
