ALL SOULS DAY

November 2nd, All Souls Day.  Just returned from our Parish of St. Damien of Molokai where the Priests there said a total of six Requiem Masses for the Poor Souls. Afterwards, we went over to the cemetery which is set adjacent to our church, to pray for the Poor Souls.  We are in the 2nd day  of the first 8 days of November where you can gain a Plenary Indulgence(Under the usual conditions) by going to a cemetery and praying for them. This Indulgence cannot be kept for yourself, it is applicable to only the Poor Souls.

 

Eight Days in November

The faithful who during the period of eight days from November 1st – 8th visit a cemetery in the spirit of piety and devotion and pray, even mentally, for the dead, may gain a plenary indulgence each of those eight days under the usual conditions.  These indulgences are applicable only to the poor souls in purgatory. On the other days of the year this indulgence is a partial one.
