ALL SOULS – SPECIAL FOCUS FOR THE MONTH OF NOVEMBER
November is the month that is dedicated to the Holy Souls in Purgatory, beginning with All Souls Day. It’s a month in which Catholics pray especially for the souls of their beloved dead, and for the souls of all who have passed from this world. You can find good prayer resources for the month at: discerninghearts.com.
Here is an ancient prayer attributed to St. Ignatius of Antioch (50 – 110 A.D.), bishop and martyr:
Receive in tranquility and peace, O Lord, the souls of your servants who have departed this present life to come to you. Grant them rest and place them in the habitations of light, the abodes of blessed spirits. Give them the life that will not age, good things that will not pass away, and delights that have no end, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
