Things to do in November

Visit a Cemetery

An indulgence, applicable only to the Souls in Purgatory, is granted to the faithful, who devoutly visit a cemetery and pray, even if only mentally, for the departed.

The indulgence is plenary each day from the 1st to the 8th of November; on other days of the year it is partial.


Your blogger is pretty sure that a columbarium counts as a cemetery.

Recite the Requiem Aeternam

Eternal rest grant to them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace. (Roman Breviary)

partial indulgence, applicable only to the souls in purgatory.

And many others.

Thanks for the reminder - I'll try to drag my wife before the 8th!
