All Souls day AKA Day of the dead

Once again, the fellow Catholic folk holding The Annual event of the All Souls day AKA Day of The Day.  It is one of must do thing in the Roman Catholic world on 2nd of November.

All Souls’ day commemorates the faithful departed.  The Roman Catholic celebration is associated with the souls of the doctrine that the souls of the faithful who at death have not been cleansed from the temporal punishment due to venial sins and from attachment to mortal sins cannot immediately attain the beatific vision in heaven, and that they may be helped to do so by prayer and by the sacrifice of the Mass.  In other words, when they died, they had not yet attained full sanctification and moral perfection, a requirement for entrance into Heaven.  This sanctification is carried out posthumously in Purgatory.

We normally hire the commentary keeper to clean up the spot then on the day then we will get the beautiful flowers and candles to the commentary follow by prayer.  Though Buddhism does have the similar event in some time April and that’s call ‘Qingming’.

We can’t make it there this time. Thus asked sister Evelyn to get some candles and light for us. RIP Pa!
