Sunday Meditation: Celebrate All Saints and All Souls by Helping Make More Saints!


During the next week, you can free a soul from Purgatory every day by gaining a plenary indulgence. Visit and pray in a cemetery and meet the other regular requirements (praying for the traditional intentions of the Holy Father, receive Communion and go to Confession within a week, and be detached from all sin including venial sin, which is the really hard part.) Just think of the crowd that will be praying you out of Purgatory if you make the effort to help souls now. You can read more about the norms for gaining indulgences by going to Catholic Culture. Pope Francis has extended the indulgence practice for All Saints and the Holy Souls for the entire month of November. What an opportunity to do acts of love and charity for the dead.
