``Where the Bishop is, there let the multitude of believers be;
even as where Jesus is, there is the Catholic Church'' Ignatius of Antioch, 1st c. A.D

All Souls Novena

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.
