This Sunday we took some time to lovingly remember Br. Robert Julian Dabrow, a Carmelite of Mercy, who died one year ago today. Before Mass, we prayed the rosary, a devotion he loved. Today's epistle in the Revised Common Lectionary, Ephesians 6:10-20, about the whole armor of God, is extensively quoted in the Rule of St. Albert, the Carmelite Rule; and we sang one of his favorite hymns, "Hark, hark my soul, angelic songs are swelling." Afterwards, we went out for a celebratory dinner at which we toasted his memory. Bob took great joy in praying with the parish, hospitality, good food, and good company, so we're pretty sure he approved. A very special thanks to all who made this a lovely evening.
