The Commemoration of all the Faithful Departed
****************************************************************************************
Today, on this Feast of All Souls Day, we pray for the souls of all those who have died. Normally,
today is not a holy day of obligation, but since it is a Sunday, today’s celebration takes care of both All Saints
Day and All Souls Day. There are many choices of readings for this day, all focusing on our belief in the
resurrection of the dead and Jesus' promise of eternal life. The Gospel story of the raising of Lazarus offers us
many important insights about this aspect of our faith.
Jesus was good friends with Lazarus and his sisters, Martha and Mary. Lazarus had fallen ill, and
Martha and Mary had sent word to Jesus. Jesus delays his journey to them, however, and when he arrives in
Bethany, he finds that Lazarus is dead and has been buried for four days.
The scene described at Bethany is a sad one; Lazarus and his family have many friends who have
come to mourn his death. Martha goes out to meet Jesus when he arrives. She cries with him, saying that if
Jesus had been there, Lazarus would not have died. Yet she remains confident that God will do whatever Jesus
asks. Jesus consoles her with the promise that Lazarus would rise from the dead. Martha affirms her belief that
there will be resurrection of the dead in the last days. Jesus promises her even more; he says that he himself is
the Resurrection and the life for all those who believe in him. Martha professes her faith in this,
acknowledging that Jesus is Christ, the Son of God.
This is the profession of faith we continue to make, and it is the promise on which we base our hope
for eternal life for ourselves and for all those who have died. In his death and Resurrection, Jesus has
conquered death for all those who believe in him.
We believe that we continue to share a relationship with those who have died. We call it the
Communion of Saints. When we pray for the souls of the faithful departed, we are praying for those whose
souls are journeying through purgatory, being prepared for eternal life in heaven. We believe that our prayers
for them will help to speed their journey to eternal life with God in heaven. Here is a great prayer to pray for
All Souls:
Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Most Precious Blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the
masses said throughout the world today, for all the holy souls in purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners
in the universal church, those in my own home and within my family. Amen.
Ad Maiorem Dei Gloriam, Fr. Greg.

The Altar Flowers last week were in honor of Clara
Rizzo’s 80th Birthday and the Sanctuary Candle
was also in honor of Clara’s Birthday from Pat
Cobb and Shirley Kelly. Sorry for the mistake, but
hoping that you had a Blessed week. The flowers
were beautiful and I am so sorry for the mistake!

do this by taking time out to pray for
those in need.
