All Souls Day- 2nd Nov

Would have said happy All Soul's Day but I guess its more of sadness and contemplation than happiness.
A day to pray for our beloved and others who have no one to pray for them. 
Purgatory is not a very pleasant place so it would be nice if we remembered our departed brethren, we are their only hope to see the beatific vision, lets help them.
There are a couple of prayers we could say in addition to attending mass on their behalf, we could also visit the grave of a loved one or a grave yard and say a couple of prayers for them. 
The Requiem Missa cantata is my favourite sung mass, I find the hymns moving which helps you contemplate better, here are some of the tunes I like
The Dies Ire is a psalm all must read...

Here is another version, very dramatic

Please attend a traditional Latin  sung Requiem mass, you will be moved....
