Thought for November:

The ”communion of saints” refers to the link between the saints in heaven,

the people in purgatory and the pilgrims still on earth.

In death, we Christians do not leave the Church, the Body of Christ.

For us “ Life is changed, not ended” as we hear in the Preface of the Mass for the Dead.
