All Souls’ Day

In contrast to yesterday when were celebrating the feasts of all the saints in Heaven whether they’re canonized or not, today we commemorate the souls in Purgatory. There they are purified from all attachment to sin so that they are worthy to enter the presence of God. A good priest that I knew died earlier this year, so he is a new addition to my list of people to pray for this year.

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them.
