FROM THE DESK OF FR. BONA: The month of November begins with the Solemnity of All Saints when we remember the Church Triumphant (Ecclesia triumphans), that is those who are already enjoying the beatific vision in Heaven. The following day, November 2 (All Souls), we switch gears and focus on the Church Suffering (Ecclesia patiens), that is on the souls in Purgatory. It has become a tradition then to remember the faithful departed throughout the month of November. On All Souls’ Day the Church allows priests to offer three Masses. On this day, therefore we will have Mass at 9AM at St. Emeric (Hungarian) at 12 noon at St. Elizabeth (Hungarian/English) and at 6PM at St. Emeric (English). Let us pray often for the deceased with the following prayer: Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
November plenary indulgences for the faithful departed: in consideration of the current pandemic, the Apostolic Penitentiary has modified (by decree of October 22, 2020) the conditions required to obtain the usual plenary indulgences for the faithful departed. There are two indulgences: (1) The visit to the cemetery to pray for the deceased, and (2) the visit to a church or oratory with recitation of the ‘Our Father’ and Creed there on All Souls’ Day, may this year be fulfilled at any time during the month of November. The sick and those unable to leave their homes may obtain the same plenary indulgences by pious prayer for the deceased before an image of Jesus or the Blessed Virgin Mary. Usual conditions for the reception of plenary indulgences apply (confession a week before or after – one confession can be used for multiple indulgences, communion, prayer for the Holy Father’s intentions and detachment from all sin). God bless! Fr. Bona.
