Prayer for the Deceased

<p>Prayer for the deceased, is an important part of our Catholic Faith . The following briefly explains this teaching regarding the Poor Souls in Purgatory and how to practice devotion on behalf of the faithful departed. Purgatory is the place where the saved are purified of any obstacles preventing them from entering heaven. These holy or poor souls are happy that they will certainly see God but embrace the separation and purifying sufferings they must undergo. Jesus Christ gave us the Church, the Mass and the Sacraments to assist and to strengthen us during life and at death. However, we must always pray for the dead because we cannot presume that they are already in heaven. This solicitude is seen in the funeral Mass with its consoling chants and prayers which beg for the deceased with unutterable pleadings. These moving ceremonies continue at the cemetery where the body is buried to await the resurrection.</p><p></p><p>Our work for the poor souls does not cease at the graveside but has just begun. Recalling that “it is therefore a holy and wholesome thought to pray for the dead, that they may be loosed from sins”, we know that we can relieve their sufferings by prayer and especially by the Holy Mass. From the days in the catacombs the names of the faithful departed were read at the Memento of the dead and placed on the altar. We continue this pious devotion by putting the names of your beloved dead near the tabernacle on All Souls Day and by recommending them to Our Lord at all our Masses during November, the month dedicated to the Poor Souls. </p><p></p><p>You are invited to send us the names of your deceased and we will place them near the tabernacle on All Souls Day. They will remain there throughout November so we can remember them at all our Masses. May the Souls of the Faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen.</p><p></p><p>Watch the Videos</p><p></p><p><a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nFrtegIW8rk">Prayer for the Deceased</a></p><p></p><p><a href="http://www.metacafe.com/w/7713459">Prayer for the Deceased</a></p><p></p><p><a href="http://www.kewego.com/video/iLyROoaf2L9d.html ">Prayer for the Deceased</a></p><p></p><p><a href="http://www.blip.tv/carlnieves830/prayer-for-the-deceased-5738189">Prayer for the Deceased</a></p><p></p><p><a href="http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xmckab_prayer-for-the-deceased_people">Prayer for the Deceased</a></p><p></p><p><a href="http://www.veoh.com/watch/v239016902G3EqyWD">Prayer for the Deceased</a></p><p></p><p><a href="http://www.godtube.com/watch/?v=F12JCCNU">Prayer for the Deceased</a></p><p></p><p><a href="http://www.videowebtown.com/carlnieves830/35675/113953">Prayer for the Deceased</a></p>
