Mourner's Kaddish

My friend Jodi died this morning, less that a day after Erik and Tobi brought her home from the hospital. I just got off the phone from talking (and crying) with Erik for the last hour and a half.

I feel really sad, especially since Erik said he'd tried several times to call me, so that I could pray with Jodi as she neared death, but he was unable to get through. I'd just spoken with Jodi and prayed with her a couple of days ago, while she was still in the hospital.

Now there's another prayer to be prayed.

Magnified and sanctified be G-d's great name in the world which He created according to His will. May he establish His kingdom during our lifetime and during the lifetime of Israel. Let us say, Amen.

May G-d's great name be blessed forever and ever.

Blessed, glorified, honored and extolled, adored and acclaimed be the name of the Holy One, though G-d is beyond all praises and songs of adoration which can be uttered. Let us say, Amen.

May there be peace and life for all of us and for all Israel. Let us say, Amen.

Let He who makes peace in the heavens, grant peace to all of us and to all Israel. Let us say, Amen.

Blessings and peace to one and all,

Fr. Tim, SJ

I have known the Hein family for many years. It was difficult to hear that Jodi had cancer and more difficult to hear that she had passed. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. May God keep her soul forever.
