A note to us from the Poor Clare Colettine Nuns in Wales.
Dear Little hearts, This is a precious witness to love and faith, what love and faith can do for a family. Please remember them all, lovingly all your sisters.
Eternal Rest grant unto Anthony Strauss, O Lord
and let Perpetual Light shine upon him.
May his Soul and the Souls of all the Faithful Departed
through the Mercy of God,
Rest in Peace.
On Thursday afternoon (December 29, 2011), just after 3 pm, Hour of Mercy, while Anthony’s parents held him in their arms, dear little Anthony passed on into the Loving Arms of Our Eternal Father. He was surrounded in prayer and song by his family and friends as he entered into His Father’s House to join his beloved sister, Gloria!
God reward you all for your prayers…and please continue them for Anthony and the entire Strauss family.
Someone created a photo montage and in it there are quite a few pictures of Anthony with his dear sister, Gloria who passed after a long battle with cancer. You see him, after her death, holding a big picture of her during the memorial held in a large high school gym. There has been a child’s book and an adult book written of the miracle of Gloria’s short life and dying/death…called Gloria’s Miracle. I was told that it was translated into Polish where there has been much prayer to Gloria for intercession.
Now, little Anthony is with his sister Gloria! May they pray for us all!
Below are some pictures I thought you would treasure seeing.
Gloria said that praying the rosary was the only time that she didn’t feel pain.
