Naming names

Every year, in a Sunday that falls closest to All Saints and All Souls Day, the names of all the parishioners who have died in the past year are read aloud at St. Aloysius Church on the GU campus.

After a month's worth of names are read, the congregation sings:

“All I ask of you is forever to remember me as loving you.”

Wouldn't be a bad thing for all of us to ask in our final days.
