November a time to remember and pray for the departed faithful
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
Throughout the month of November we remember the faithful who have departed, both those who are in heaven and those who died in good relationship with God but need to be purified before seeing God face to face.
From the Catechism of the Catholic Church,
Number 1030 All who die in God's grace and friendship, but still imperfectly purified, are indeed assured of their eternal salvation; but after death they undergo purification, so as to achieve the holiness necessary to enter the joy of heaven.
For more details, see the Catechism numbers 1020-1065.
