Prayers for the dead
All Souls Day
was started in 998. It's a Roman Catholic day of remembrance for friends
and loved ones who have passed away. All Souls Day is on November 2,
following All Saints Day.
November 2 is the day on which
special prayers are offered for the souls of the faithful which at death
have not been cleansed from venial sins, or have not atoned for past
transgressions, cannot attain the beatific vision. It is a time to pray
for their souls to assist the souls from Purgatory to Heaven.
The Day of the Dead, All Souls
Day, is an official holiday of the Catholic Calendar. On this day, three
requiem masses are celebrated: one for the celebrant, one for the
departed, and one for the pope.
Prayer for All Souls Day
hear our prayer and console us.
As we renew our faith in Your Son,
whom You raised from the dead,
strengthen our hope that all our departed brothers and sisters
will share in His resurrection,
who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen
Eternal Rest grant unto them, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon them.
May they rest in peace.
2 Maccabees 12:44 - If he had not believed that the dead would be raised, it
would have been foolish and useless to pray for them.
Prayer for All Souls Day
Just as Jesus died and rose
again, so will the Father bring with him those who have died in Jesus.
Just as in Adam all men die, so in Christ all will be made alive.
God our Father, we ask that you hear our prayers and bring us some
consolation in our lives. As we remember in our prayers all of our loved
ones who have died, we pray that they will have received the promise of
eternal life and that they are with you in experiencing the joy of
heaven. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives
and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
