  1. To Pray for the Living and the Dead

    By Wendy Silhavy | Monday, November 07, 2016

    During the month of November, we remember in a special way those loved ones who have passed into eternal life. Beginning with the celebration of All Saints on November 1, and continuing with the commemoration of All Souls on November 2, the month begins with an intensification of our prayers for the dead, our prayers that the dead may be reborn into eternal life. To pray for the living and the dead is one of the spiritual works of mercy.
