Now the flaming sword no longer guards the gates of Eden;
It has been mysteriously quenched by the Wood of the Cross.
The sting of death and the victory of hell have been vanquished;
for You, O My Savior, have come and cried to those in hell:
"Enter again into Paradise!"
The family thanks you all, from the bottom of our hearts, for joining us through our blog entries during Fr. Thomas' last days.
We have taken down the entries as he is now laid to rest, and we ask for your continued prayers for his eternal memory!
