Month of November

November is dedicated to praying for the dead. Our prayers, indulgences gained and masses offered on behalf of the deceased assist them through purgatory to heaven. It is also a month to reflect on our own mortality and the last things: after our death, we will face judgement and will either be found worthy to live with God in heaven or be separated from Him for eternity in hell. This month let us put first things first: the only reason we are on this earth is to prepare for eternity  - Father Paul Nulley
