Month of the Holy Souls and Remembrance

All of us have loved ones gone before us and it’s nice to have a special time to remember and pray for them.  We have All Saints on the First. These include all sorts of people, parents, friends and even enemies. God’s goodness extends to all in the hereafter. Most people try to do their best most of the time, make the best fist of what life has thrown at them. It helps us give space  for the mistakes they have made and gives us some hope that our mistakes will get space too.
We proclaim the resurrection of the body and the promise of life everlasting. The feasts offer consolation to all of us good and not so good, the judgement of this is God’s business and our God has a vested interest in forgiveness! All Souls sees the same people from the perspective of incompleteness or
imperfection. We ask for deliverance from imperfection of those gone before us. Faithful souls who seek to purify themselves of sin and become holy with the help of God’s grace are not alone.
All of us are in the Communion of Saints. There’s a link between those who have already reached their heavenly home, those who are expiating their sins in Purgatory and those of us who are still pilgrims in this world. In this wonderful exchange, the holiness of one profits others well beyond the harm that the sin of one could cause.
Recourse to the communion of saints by means of indulgences, as the Church teaches, lets the contrite sinner be more quickly and efficaciously
purified of the punishments of sin. The treasury of the Church is the infinite and inexhaustible value of the merits of Christ before God. It includes the prayers and good works of the Blessed Virgin Mary and all the saints. Making use of the gift of indulgences, we not only come to the spiritual aid of others, but are stimulated to perform fervent works of devotion,  penance and charity.

All works and prayers enriched with indulgences, as well as any other good works and sufferings endured with patience are linked with the Mass and the Sacraments, because they are the principal sources of sanctification and purification and have infinite value. In this way, our good works and sufferings
become offerings added to the Offering of Christ in the Eucharistic Sacrifice. The Mass and the Sacraments enable us to carry out the duties of our state in life in a way that enables us to live what we have learned from the Faith.

3rd 31st Sunday: I will bless your name forever! Little by little you correct those who offend, so that they may abstain from evil and trust in you Lord. “Come down I want to stay at your house.” Are we ready? Welcoming?

6th All the Saints of Ireland. If we have died with him we shall live with him.

9th Dedication of Lateran Basilica. Lovely texts for dedication of a Church which we will have again on 18th. We are all Body of Christ.

10th 32nd Sunday. I shall be filled when I awake with the sight of your glory! ‘Pray that the message be spread quickly and be received with honour as it was among you. May the Lord turn your hearts towards the love of God and the fortitude of Christ’.

17th 33rd Sunday. Don’t be deceived! The Lord is coming to rule the peoples with fairness. But, you will be hated by all on account of me. Remember the beatitude; Happy are you when people abuse you and persecute you and speak all kinds of calumny against you on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven!

24th Christ the King.The Lord is enthroned as king for ever; may the Lord bless his people with peace! Before any thing was he existed and he holds all things in unity. He is first in every way,  Because God wanted all perfection to be found in him, and all things to be reconciled through him and for him, everything in heaven  and everything on earth, when he made peace by his death on the cross.
