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.
ANOINTING OF THE SICK
THE SACRAMENT OF THE ANOINTING OF THE SICK, WILL BE CELEBRATED ON
DECEMBER 8th AT THE 11:30 AM MASS, FOLLOWED BY A LIGHT LUNCH IN THE FR. FLANAGAN CENTER.
Sign-up sheets will be at the back of the church starting on November 10th.
If you have any questions please call the Parish Office.
THE SACRAMENT EXPLAINED: *Like all the sacraments, it is a liturgical and communal celebration. *It is not a sacrament intended only for those who are at the point of death, but any baptized person who is seriously or chronically ill or in danger of death from advancing age may receive the sacrament. *It may be received by those preparing for serious surgery, the elderly whose infirmity declines further and seriously ill children. *A person who has previously received the sacrament may receive it again if the condition worsens or if the condition initially improved and then worsens again.”
