Today is All Souls Day — a powerful memorial in the liturgical calendar. But did you know that the Church exhorts us to pray for souls very intentionally during the entire month of November? Yes! The recently uploaded Among Women podcast covers this important prayer, and I invite you to listen.
Praying for the Souls in Purgatory
This is the 11th installment in a 12-part series on the monthly church devotions. In November we are called to pray for the holy souls — the faithful departed — as they move toward purification and the perfection of Heaven. While the Church’s All Souls memorial is traditionally on Nov. 2 every year, the truth is that the entire month is dedicated to praying for souls.
In this podcast I’ll offer a brief teaching on the hopeful truth of purgatory, and the benefits of praying for souls. And of course we’ll pray together at the end — for the many souls that might benefit from our prayers!
