I was struck by this lovely stained glass window captured by Fr Lawrence Lew OP; click on the photo or see his photostream here. It comes from St Chad's Cathedral, Birmingham.
Pray for the dead! We'll all be dead one day, and we won't think a moment of the living's time wasted if spent on the souls in Purgatory. November is their month.
This week - every day until the 8th - a Plenary Indulgence can be gained for the Faithful Departed by saying prayers for them in a cemetery, upon the usual conditions: communion within a couple of days, confession within a week, and prayers for the Holy Father. Don't miss you chance!
