  1. Dear PIME Fathers,

    The priest yesterday during the anticipated mass said, that we celebrate All Saint’s Day to honor and remember not just famous saints like Saint Therese or Saint Thomas but countless and nameless people who have done good and followed God’s commandment of love. They are people who have been given the reward of eternal life like Father Tulio Favali, Father Salvatore Carzedda and the other martyrs of the PIME. It may also include our grandparents and other family members. We honor them because they are examples of how we should live…that is according to the will of God.
    All Soul’s Day on the other hand, we honor and remember souls who have not yet attained eternal life, but are sufferring in Purgatory or cannot rest in peace. We pray that they may be released from their sufferrings and gain eternal life with God.
