All Souls Day, Pray for the dead, November 2.

Via Catholic Online

All Souls Day is a holy day set aside for honoring the dead. According to Catholic belief, the soul of a person who dies can go to one of three places. The first is heaven, where a person who dies in a state of perfect grace and communion with God goes. The second is hell, where those who die in a state of mortal sin are naturally condemned by their choice. The intermediate option is purgatory, which is thought to be where most people, free of mortal sin, but still in a state of lesser (venial) sin, must go.

Consistent with these teachings and traditions, Catholics believe that through the prayers of the faithful on Earth, the dead are cleansed of their sins so they may enter into heaven.

All Souls’ Day, November 2

“The Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed

Psalm 23:6 ESV

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
    all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord
    forever.

Lord of life,
your unfailing help sustains us
in hope of the salvation you promise.
May those who have gone before us be happy with you,
and welcome us into your Kingdom when our time comes.

Amen
