Don't know

June 17th, 2010 at 02:26 pm

how I will deal with Father's Day on Sunday. I already feel a tremendous sadness since my father passed away two week ago on Friday. There is a little spot in my backyard that I always spruce up every summer. This year I decided that I'll do something to honor my Dad. I was thinking just the other day that when my mother was pregnant with my brother and was was in labor for a long time, my father, who was not Catholic (my mom was though), asked Saint Martin de Porres to intercede before God to help my Mom give birth. I think I'll try to get a statue of Saint Martin de Porres or an angel and plant some flowers around it.

    ((hugs)) I am so sorry that this is going to be a difficult day for you. I LOVE your idea of a garden spot in honor of your dad. And I LOVE the story about your non-Catholic dad praying to Martin de Porres. He is a saint that I will have to read up on. Blessings to you. As a Catholic, I do believe that your dad is with our Heavenly Father, and nothing can beat that (as my 7 year old pointed out after our recent loss).

    Saint Martin de Porres loved children and my brother's middle name is Martin in his honor.

    I think your plan is a great idea. Good memories are great healers.

    Its awful. There is no other way to get through it other than to get through it. Its going to suck so keep busy. I'm sorry that this has happened to you.

    I think your plan is very nice. It will honor him in a way that is meaningful to you.
