All Souls Day, November 2nd

Mass, Wednesday 7 AM
Commemoration of all the Faithful
Departed (All Soul’s Day)

The ‘fire’ of purgatory is God’s love ‘burning’ the soul so that, at last, the soul is wholly aflame. It is the pain of wanting to be made totally worthy of One who is seen as infinitely lovable, the pain of desire for union that is now absolutely assured, but not yet fully tasted
— St. Catherine of Genoa
