On this Feast of All Souls we remember our beloved dead, and we hold on to the words of hope that are proclaimed through the Scripture readings. May we pray for those who have gone before us: Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them!May they rest in peace!
Yesterday’s celebration of All Saints inspires us today to pray for All Souls. We remember our faithful departed and commend them to the loving mercy of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. On this sober feast we recall that one day we will all make the journey from this life to the next, and we ask God for the grace to carry on.
