The Locked Down Dead

We made a little trip to All Souls cemetery this afternoon.   We were going to put a little flag on my mother's grave and say a few prayers.  It's Memorial Day on Monday.  You used to be able to get an indulgence for prayer and a cemetery visit but that may be just in the first week of November in these enlightened days.

In any event, we didn't.  It was closed.  The China virus, doncha know.

Whom, one wonders, do the powers that be think I was going to infect in a graveyard?  Or were they worried about us?  Do they think the dead are still blowing out virii through their coffin lids and six feet of earth?
