November Prayer Themes

During the Month of November, we remember it is the Month of the Holy Souls and all those loved ones we wish to pray for who have died.

We pray for all who have died in war – soldiers and civilians.

11th November – Remembrance Sunday. This year it will be the Centenary Year of the Armistice in 1918.

During November in school we open the Book of Remembrance and keep a lit candle burning all day every day on the altar during the Month.

O Good Jesus, whose loving Heart was ever troubled by the sorrows of others, look with pity on the souls of our dear ones in purgatory.  O You who “Loved Your Own” hear our cry for mercy, and grant those whom You have called from our homes and hearts, may soon enjoy everlasting rest in the home of Your Love in heaven.  Amen.

Eternal Rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them, may they rest in peace. Amen.

May these and all the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.  Amen.
