A comment on the Mexican saying of dying three deaths (Post #250): "Mexicans and Italians think alike, those gone cannot be forgotten. We pray for them in death as we prayed for them in life!"
On all Souls Day and praying for those who are in Purgatory: "I wonder how many people know about the Plenary Indulgences that can be gained for the Poor Souls in Purgatory. The Fraternity of St Peter had it in their last newsletter about how from November 1st through 8th, you can gain a Plenary Indulgence each day by attending Mass, Communion, (and Confession within the week) and visiting a cemetery and praying for the Poor Souls. It is explained in more detail in their newsletter, but is a wonderful opportunity to do this for the Poor Souls. I always try to do that and encourage my kids also. It can only be given to the Poor Souls."
