Feast days

Nov 1:  The Solemnity of All Saints is usually a Holy Day of Obligation, but this year since it is on Saturday (right before Sunday), it is not.  The vigil of the Feast is "All Hallows Eve," which most people know as "Halloween."

Nov 2:  The Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed, commonly called "All Souls' Day," is a Sunday this year, so it will be the feast celebrated throughout the world for our Sunday obligation. Remember: Praying for the dead is a work of mercy!  

The importance of All Souls' Day was made clear by Pope Benedict XV (1914-22), when he granted all priests the privilege of celebrating three Masses on All Souls' Day: one, for the faithful departed; one for the priest's intentions; and one for the intentions of the Holy Father. Only on a handful of other very important feast days are priests allowed to celebrate more than two Masses.

On All Souls' Day, we not only remember the dead, but we apply our efforts, through prayer, almsgiving, and the Mass, to their release from Purgatory.  It is also a good practice to visit a cemetery to pray for the dead there.
