"All Souls Day was started in 998. It’s a Roman Catholic day of remembrance for friends and loved ones who have passed away. All Souls Day is on November 2nd, following All Saints Day.
November 2nd is the day on which special prayers are offered for the souls of the faithful which at death have not been cleansed from venial sins, or have not atoned for past transgressions, cannot attain beatific vision. It is a time to pray for their souls to assist the souls from Purgatory to Heaven.
The Day of the Dead, All Souls Day, is an official holiday of the Catholic Calendar. On this day, three requiem masses are celebrated: one for the celebrant, one for the departed, and one for the pope."
Today, I pray for and remember the beloved souls of my loved ones.....
We are truly blessed to have this day to pray for our loved ones. It's another way our Catholic faith is so full of Grace.ReplyDelete
