All Souls (Go to Heaven) Day
#1
Today the Novus Ordo celebrates the great feast of All Souls Go to Heaven Day.  Throw on your favorite white chasuble, Padre, it's time to celebrate the lives of those who have gone before us.
I picked up my new breviary, the suggested hymn for morning prayer is "Jesus Christ is Risen Today".  You can recite part of the Dies Irae some time though, if you feel like it.

It's great to have options, isn't it? 

"Novus Ordo Collect" Wrote:As we renew our faith in Your Son,
whom You raised from the dead,
strengthen our hope
that all our departed brothers and sisters
will share in His resurrection,
They're all in Heaven, we just don't hope hard enough.  Hope harder, people! 
And renew!  Renew, keep renewing!  Everything must be new!

Compare to:
"TLM Collect" Wrote:grant to thy servants and handmaidens a place of refreshment, the happiness of rest, and the brightness of Thy light
Wherein we actually pray for the departed.

Sometimes I don't know why I wake up in the morning.
