As we leave the month of November, specially dedicated to praying for those who have gone before us, we remember that praying for our loved ones is not limited just to November. On the contrary, November is devoted to the Holy Souls to re-kindle our love and our prayers for all the souls in purgatory, our brothers and sisters in Christ. Moving into the remembrance of the Incarnation by which we, and all the Holy Souls, were redeemed, we present them in a special way to our Infant King, asking Him Who Is Love Incarnate to pour forth His loving compassion upon these souls who long to see His face and to bring them fully into the Kingdom of His Love this Christmas season. Eternal rest, grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace!
Through Thy Nativity, O Lord, deliver them!
