That’s what priests say when a person is departing.
In my former parish, we would go to the altar to receive traveling mercies.
My daughter-in-law died this week.
She died at home surrounded by family and friends.
It is the end of suffering for her.
It is the beginning of a new journey for my son and his little girl.
I wish them traveling mercies.
