For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. ---Ephesians 6:12

"The age of casual Catholicism is over; the age of heroic Catholicism has begun. We can no longer be Catholics by accident, but instead must be Catholics by CONVICTION." ---Fr. Terrence Henry TOR, Franciscan University of Steubenville

All Souls Day

A good explanation for All Souls Day, and a website to visit! 

Also, if you live in or are passing through the Chicago area you might wish to stop by St. Odilo's church in Berwyn, IL where the National Shrine of Lost Souls is located to offer a prayer for deceased friends and/or relations.  St. Odilo is the patron saint of lost souls.  Fr. Anthony Brankin is the pastor and gives impressive homilies.

There is also a formula for a plenary indulgence for a soul in purgatory if certain prayers are done at a visit to the shrine in November.
