In a very old, historic cemetery, we gathered in a little chapel to pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy for the souls in Purgatory and then took a guided tour of the cemetery.
What a peaceful morning it was! I prayed for the departed souls knowing that someday, when they are saints in heaven, they will remember this and pray for me.
Visiting a cemetery and praying for the souls in Purgatory on All Souls Day is an act of love; a Spiritual Work of Mercy. It is a way to obtain a Plenary Indulgence for the souls in Purgatory.
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord; And let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace. Amen
