It is a season to strengthen prayers as 2020 has been a tough year riddled with death, from the moment the corona virus broke out. We need to intensify prayers of protection for our loved ones especially in this end of year season where ritualistic sacrifices are most common. May the souls of these dear children rest in peace.
