Did I mention I get into “Ancestor mode” at this time of year…

I finally got around to writing the prayer that I will use daily for my for ancestor veneration, I have recently been feeling the need to go beyond my current set up. The prayer might need to be tweaked here and there but overall I am happy with it. For the last year or more I have only honored 4 ancestors the reason for doing that was because I was new to ancestor veneration and I did not want to jump in and honor “The Collective” which is quiet something when you really think of it . I think the best advice I can and will ever give anyone with regards to one’s ancestors is to go and do your research, ask family member’s about them.

I think when people do research into their family trees especially, they only see the name and seem to forget that they where living people who went through all the sorrows and joys that we go through today, the only difference is they lived in a different time period.
