November is the month of the Holy Souls. We remember those who have died, and pray for the happy repose of their souls. There is great comfort for each of us in the knowledge that the dead are remembered especially at this time. We pray, too, for the souls who have nobody left to pray for them, and ask God to show his mercy to one and all.
