Reminder to Pray for Holy Souls

Each November we recall, in a special way, those who have died and who await heaven. Let us be mindful of the Holy Souls desirous of our prayers.

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord; and may perpetual light shine upon them.

DE PROFUNDIS (Psalm 130...the church uses this Psalm in her liturgy for the souls in purgatory). What a beautiful prayer....

Out of the depths I call to you, LORD;
Lord, hear my cry!
May your ears be attentive
to my cry for mercy.

If you, LORD, keep account of sins,
Lord, who can stand?

But with you is forgiveness
and so you are revered.

I wait for the LORD,
my soul waits and I hope for his word.

My soul looks for the Lord
more than sentinels for daybreak.

More than sentinels for daybreak,
let Israel hope in the LORD,
For with the LORD is mercy,
with him is plenteous redemption

And he will redeem Israel
from all its sins.
