||Many Catholics pray this
Novena for their dead and for all those in Purgatory, starting today and
ending on the eve of the Feast of All Souls.
Say once a day for nine days, starting on 24 October until the Eve of All
Souls Day, which takes place on 2 November
O God, the Creater and Redeemer of all the faithful, grant to the souls of
thy servants and handmaids departed, the remission of all their sins; that
through pious supplications they may obtain the pardon they have always desired.
Who livest and reignest with God the Father in the unity of the Holy Ghost,
God, world without end. Amen.
