Dear Friends of the Jesuits:
November is the month of the Holy Souls, when we all have a duty to pray for and remember all those who have gone before us. Some of those for whom we pray are with our Father in Heaven, while others may be in purgatory. The Church reminds us that a way for these Holy Souls in purgatory to realize their eternal reward in Heaven is through our intercessions and prayers.
Pope Francis invites us to pray for those who have gone before us,
One again this year, the Jesuits of Canada invite you to send in the names of important people in your lives who have died. These names will be placed in a basket at the altar of our Jesuit parish Holy Rosary in Guelph, Ontario. Throughout November, the Jesuits will pray for your loved ones during their daily Eucharist.
We sincerely hope you have joined us or will join us in this prayerful remembrance of the deceased. May our prayers and actions during November help all the departed, and especially those in purgatory, to attain the glories of Heaven.
Thank you for your support and prayers during November and throughout the year. The Jesuits are most grateful and are praying for you.
Barry J. Leidl
