HALLOWE’EN comes from the early name for Nov 1st, All Saints’ Day. This holyday remembers the Saints that are not honoured with a Feast Day. In the Celtic tradition Oíche Shamhna, was one of their four sacred feasts, remembering spirits of the dead. Our dead are part of the Communion of Saints and in November we particularly remember them
ALL SOULS Traditionally, on this day & especially during all of November, we visit a church or graveyard to pray for our dead.
Norms for Indulgences at the Commemoration of All Souls Indulgences may be gained by doing the following: From 12 o'clock on 1 November until midnight on 2 Nov., all who have a) confessed, b) received Communion c) prayed for the Pope's intentions (one Our Father and Hail Mary, or any other prayer of one's choice) can gain one plenary indulgence - applicable only to the souls of the departed - by visiting a church or oratory and there reciting one Our Father and the Apostle's Creed. From 1 - 8 November the faithful who visit a cemetery and pray for the dead may gain a plenary indulgence once per day - applicable only to the Holy Souls. Conditions a, b, c, above apply also.
