As most of you undoubtedly know, there was an outbreak of tornadoes in the South last Wednesday (April 27th). Official numbers have the death toll at 342, with the vast majority of those in Alabama.

With all this in mind, I am going to pray the Office of the Dead on Thursday, May 5th. Two things:

  • If you have any names you’d like me to add to the list, please comment below or shoot me an email. Of course, the only requirement is that they are dead — not necessarily that they died in the storms; they will be remembered in prayer. I will be remembering a famous dead terrorist on Thursday, too.
  • Let me know if you’d like to join me, so we can hash out a time for Vespers and Matins of the Dead from The Anglican Breviary (or Haligweorc’s Prayer Book adaptation thereof).
Rest eternal grant unto them, O Lord and let light perpetual shine upon them.
