Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed

John 6:37-40

In the feast of All Souls we profess our belief that just as God has not stopped loving these poor souls because of their imperfections neither have we. For us the belief in purgatory is Good News: even though we may not in this life be perfect as our heavenly father is perfect we can still hold fast to the hope that there are mansions for us in the kingdom of heaven.
