Recently, Pope Francis himself extended his thoughts and prayers to those tasked with burying the thousands who have died in this global health crisis.

“Let us pray today for people who bury the dead during the pandemic. To bury the dead is one of the works of mercy. Let us also pray for them because they also risk their lives and can be infected,” reminded the Holy Father before Mass at the Casa Santa Marta last Saturday of the Fifth Week of Easter.

Presiding Sunday’s Eucharistic celebration will be Fr. Jose Quilongquilong, SJ, with Ateneo de Manila President Fr.Jett Villarin SJ as homilist. Assisting will be altar servers from San Jose Seminary. Serving as master of ceremonies is Fr. Ruben ‘JR’ Orbeta SJ of Ateneo de Iloilo-Santa Maria Catholic School, while singers from the Jesuit Residence will comprise the morning’s choir.
