As we come to another celebration of All Hallows Eve, to prepare for the celebration of All Saints and All Souls Day, Holy Mother Church in her wisdom and God given grace is giving us the ability to commemorate the souls who passed on before us and could be in Purgatory, undergoing purification of their temporal punishments before entering heaven.
Here is a brief list of suggestions on how to lovingly commemorate those who have gone ahead of you.
1. Pray for Souls
Need help praying? No worries. We have compiled a list of prayers.
2. Recite a Rosary or chaplet with the intention for departed souls.
3. Light a Candle.
The devotion of lighting a candle for those who have departed goes back to early 200 A.D.
