Eternal Rest grant unto her, O Lord and let Perpetual Light shine upon her. May she rest in Peace.
HERE. She has the most amazing missal covers! That said, I will be going up today to pick up the girls and attend the closing High Mass. So naturally my missal with my lovely cover from Catholic Embroidery is missing (never ask a young lad to "put this on my shelf, please". You are bound never to see the item again.)

A little history. The first church Fr. Samuel built on this site in Benton was St. James but as the parish grew the original frame church became too small. So in order not to disrupt the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, he built a larger stone church around St. James. In time, St. James was moved across the street as a school for girls while the larger church was then named St. Patrick's.

Quam dilecta tabernacula tua, domin virtutum! Concupiscit, et deficit anima mea in atria Domini.
Translation Douay Rheims Psalm 83:2-3
How lovely are thy tabernacles, O Lord of host!
My soul longeth and fainteth for the courts of the Lord.
