October 31st - All Hallow's EveWe remember the souls of the damned as a reminder to ourselves how we can avoid being one of the damned. Avoid the slippery slope downward of Evil and the Seven Deadly Sins:
Sloth, Lust, Anger, Pride,
Envy, Gluttony, Greed.
November 1stWe honor the Church Triumphant in Heaven, those people who have gained their Heavenly Reward. We strive to emulate the virtues they practiced. Climb the Path less traveled.
Diligence, Chastity, Meekness, Humility,
Brotherly Love, Temperance, Generosity
We pray for the Church Suffering in Purgatory that they will soon be released from the temporary hellfires of Purgatory.
A partial indulgence can be obtained by devoutly visiting a cemetery and praying for the departed, even if the prayer is only mental. One can gain a plenary indulgence visiting a cemetery each day between November 1 and November 8. These indulgences are applicable only to the Souls in Purgatory.
St. Gertrude for the release of 1000 souls from Purgatory.
If these don't enlarge for you to print email me and I can email the PDF to you. I couldn't figure out how to attach a PDF... so I made them into images.
