All Souls Day 追思已亡日
The Catholic Church dedicated 1st November as All Saints Day and 2nd November as All Souls Day.
Today, November 2, we pray for the faithful departed, those who have been baptised, been faithful to their faith, but need to be completely purified of all stain of sin before they come into full union with God in Heaven. We called this stage The Purgatory.
Besides attending Masses, Catholics also visit the graves of their departed loved one.
All Souls Day is a day of remembering our faithful departed, and also is a day for us to reflect on our own lives and our faith. Let us pray together and in union with the saints in Heaven and the souls in the Purgatory for the glorious day when we are united and see God face to face.
“ Remember, Lord, those who have died and have gone before us marked with the sign of faith. May these, and all who sleep in Christ, find in your presence light, happiness and peace"
