Month of the holy souls

On the 1st of November is All Saints  Day  followed by All Souls Day on the 2nd ,
The whole month of November dedicated to the Holy Souls.
The Church reminds us of those who have won the eternal crown in Heaven and those souls called Holy because they no longer are able to sin but destined for Heaven, and through the Mercy of God are  still being purified in  Purgatory.
We remember our loved ones , friends and benefactors who have died and we pray for them, the most efficacious way by offering the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass , the Holy Rosary, the Way of the Cross and personal prayer especially before the Blessed Sacrament ever present in the tabernacle of our churches.

The Holy Father

Let us pray for Pope Francis that he may govern the Church wisely. May the Mother of God guide him particularly in his conversation with the world and the media. Let us remember the gates of hell will not prevail. Look at his homilies and audiences. He in his own words says stay faithful to the Catechism the teachings of the Church. Let not incidentals  ( interviews etc) shake our faith or our love for the tradition and treasures of the Church

October month of the Rosary.

During October let us renew our devotion to Our Lady's Rosary. Let us each day say at least one decade . There are many intentions to pray for and so let us take heed of the words from the Mother of God at Fatima and pray the Rosary daily. Our Holy Father has entrusted the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. May we in the MI consecrate ourselves each day in the service of Our Lady to advance the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in our world.
Pray for our Holy Father that he may be truly guided by the Holy Spirit.
We also pray for the new MI International council in Rome. Many thanks to Fr Paschal Mary Corby OFM Conv who represented Australia at the assembly.
October is also the month for the special prayer to St Joseph," to You O' Blessed St Joseph  .........."
May the chaste spouse of the Immaculate Virgin and Guardian of the Child Jesus watch over the Church in these troubled times.
Look for a great film ," Mary of Nazareth". Please God it will soon come to Australia.
God love you- ---br Louis Mary
