Remembrances for August

Dear friends, if you have time, please pray for these members of the Southern family on the day they reposed.  Many thanks.

But one may ask:  ‘What good does it do to pray for the departed?’  An answer is offered here:

Along with prayers and hymns for the departed:

1 August

Rev James Henley Thornwell, one of the most formidable theological writers of the South.  You may read some of those writings here if you’d like:

3 August

Miss Flannery O’Connor, one of Dixie’s best writers, fiction and non-fiction

24 August

Jerry Clower, one of the South’s finest comedians

26 August

William Byrd II, a colonial Virginian of many attainments


Holy Ælfred the Great, King of England, South Patron, pray for us sinners at the Souð, unworthy though we are!

Anathema to the Union!
