The beauty of "Communion of Saints"

Every time we recite the Rosary we attest, "I believe in the communion of saints."

When following the de Montfort method of praying the Rosary, we begin with “I unite with all the Angels and Saints in Heaven, with all the just on earth, and with all the faithful here present. I unite with Thee, O my Jesus, in order to praise worthily Thy holy Mother, and to praise Thee in her and through her.”

How beautiful is our claim: "I belong to the Communion of Saints!" We can elaborate on that: "God is my Father, my Brother, my soul's sweet Guest; Mary - the Mother of God! - is my Mother; the saints who have laid hold on their crowns are my brothers and sisters; the noblest inhabitants of the earth, those who are clothed with sanctifying grace, are my siblings and comrades. And, as their brother/sister, I can help the blessed in Purgatory reach the heavenly goal where they will put forth all their intercessory power to help me."

We are, please God, saints in the making. We all want to save our souls, and thus be saints at last. We all want to go home. And the beauty of it is that we know the way!

"Learn of Me, for I am meek and humble of heart."

"Take up your Cross and follow Me - - and you shall find rest for your souls."

"Behold your Mother"

Indulgences for Month of November

Totius Quoties: a plenary indulgence for the souls in Purgatory may be gained by any of the faithful from noon on November 1 to midnight at the end of November 2, as often as they visit the church to pray for the faithful departed, praying at each visit six Our Fathers, six Hail Marys, and six Glory Be's; provided also that they have gone to Confession (seven days before or after) and have received Holy Communion (within the day before or up to a week after.)

A plenary indulgence: applicable only to the Holy Souls, may also be gained by the faithful under the usual conditions during the period of eight days from the commemoration of All Souls' day inclusive, and on each day of the octave, when they visit a cemetery in a spirit of piety and devotion, and pray, even mentally, for the dead.

An indulgence of 3 years: once on each day of the month of November, may be gained by the faithful who recite prayers or perform other devout exercises in supplication for the faithful departed; a plenary indulgence if they perform these devotions daily for the entire month.

An indulgence of 7 years: may be gained on each day of the month, by those who take part in public services held in a church in intercession for the faithful departed; a plenary indulgence, if they attend at least 15 of these exercises and fulfill usual conditions.
