THE DOCTRINE AND PRACTICE of indulgences in the Church is closely linked to the effects of the Sacrament of Penance. An indulgence is a remission before God of the temporal punishment due to sins whose guilt has already been forgiven, which the faithful Christian who is duly disposed gains under certain prescribed conditions through the action of the Church which, as the minister of redemption, dispenses and applies with authority the treasury of the satisfactions or Christ and the saints. An indulgence is partial or plenary according as it removes either part or all of the temporal punishment due to sin. Indulgences may be applied to the living (yourself) or the dead. – Catechism of the Catholic Church, #1471, p. 370.
FOR THE SOULS IN PURGATORY: A partial indulgence, applicable to the souls in Purgatory, is granted to the faithful who devoutly visit a cemetery and pray, even for a few minutes. The indulgence is plenary each day from the first to the eighth of November. Take advantage of this special opportunity during the month of November to earn indulgences for the souls in Purgatory.
- A plenary indulgence, applicable only to the Souls in Purgatory, is granted to the faithful, who on the day dedicated to the Commemoration of all the faithful departed piously visit a church, a public oratory or – for those entitled to use it – a semipublic oratory.
The above indulgence can be acquired either on the day designated above or, with the consent of the Ordinary, on the preceding or following Sunday or the feast of All Saints.
In visiting the church or oratory, it is required according to Norm 6 of the same Apostolic Constitution, that “one Our Father and the Creed be recited.”
- An indulgence, applicable only to the Souls in Purgatory, is granted to the faithful, who devoutly visit a cemetery and pray, even if only mentally, for the departed. The indulgence is plenary each day from the 1st to the 8th of November; on other days of the year it is partial.
- Deserving of special mention are the following works for anyone of which the faithful can gain a plenary indulgence for the souls in Purgatory any day of the year (or the indulgence may be gained once a day for oneself).
- Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament for at least one half hour.
- Devout reading of the sacred Scriptures for at least one half hour.
- Making the Way of the Cross.
- The praying of the Rosary in a church or in public.
The conditions prescribed by the Church for gaining a plenary indulgence are: the pious act, (i.e., visiting the cemetery) or prayer, (i.e., the Rosary, etc.), Confession and Communion within eight days before or after the intention of gaining the plenary indulgence; and prayer for the intentions of the Holy Father, e.g., Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be. – Enchiridion of Indulgences Norms and Grants – Pope Paul VI, 1969

NOVEMBER 2nd IS ALL SOULS DAY – Dzien Zaduszny. The night before All Souls Day is solemnly observed by the Polish people. It is the beginning of the many customs and prayers for departed family and friends.
Old legends say that at exactly midnight a great light fills the Church and all the departed souls of the parish gather to pray before the altar. Then each soul is said to return to the home in which they dwelt while alive. The evening meal of All Souls Day is almost a religious ritual. The family gathers to pray before the holy icons of Our Lady and The Saints which are beautifully decorated with embroidered cloth and fresh flowers. Prayers and hymns are offered for each departed ancestor and friend. The head of the house then opens the front door or window as if to invite the departed spirits to take part in the feast. An ancient song is chanted welcoming the souls.
“Holy sainted ancestors, we beg you come, fly to us
To eat and drink, wher’er God grant
Whatever I can offer you
Welcome to whatever this house can afford
Sainted ancestors, we beg you
Come, fly to us!”
The family gathers around the table set with extra places for the departed souls. The meal is opulent but solemn and quiet with the conversation hinging mainly on reminiscences of departed family and friends. When the feast is over, the head of the family once more opens the door and dismisses the invisible guests. Another song accompanies this leave taking.
“Sainted ancestors you came here to eat Now tell us
To eat – you have eaten What do you need?
To drink – you have drunk Or better, go back to Heaven
Homage and honor to you! Be gone! Be gone! Be gone!
The family then proceeds to the parish church for Mass and special services for the departed souls in Purgatory. At one point in the Mass a solemn procession is formed with everyone holding candles. The procession stops at the four corners of the church where special prayers are offered for the dead. If the church is near the cemetery the procession continues there where everyone prays at the graves of their family and decorates the graves with candles and flowers. The signs of hundreds of people slowly walking with their candles through a Polish cemetery at twilight is an awe inspiring sight.
At first glance the custom on remembering the dead with a family dinner may seem unusual but yet it reveals a most positive Christian attitude about death. The dead still live. They live hopefully with Christ in Heaven or Purgatory. And if they do indeed have eternal life, they continue to care and love those left behind. Thus, even in this simple dinner, the doctrine of the Communion of Saints is vividly expressed!
Institution of the Real Presence
Fr. John A. Hardon, S.J.
We reserve our meditation on the Real Presence after reflecting on the Mass and Holy Communion. Yet the Real Presence is logically prior to the Eucharist as Sacrifice and Communion. The reason is obvious. Christ must first be really present on earth in the Eucharist, before we can intelligently speak of His offering Himself in the Mass and coming to us in Communion.
Our focus here, as before, is on the institution of the Real Presence. What do we mean? We mean that what Christ did at the Last Supper, He now is doing every time that Mass is offered. Why? Because on Holy Thursday He ordained the Apostles as priests and thus gave them a share in His own power of transubstantiation. What had been bread and wine becomes the body and blood of Christ. How? By words of consecration.
What is the Real Presence? The most authoritative teaching: on the Real Presence is the solemn definition of the Council of Trent.
The body and blood, together with the soul and divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ and, therefore, the whole Christ is truly, really and substantially contained in the sacrament of the most Holy Eucharist.
What is the Church saying? She is saying that the same identical Jesus who was conceived at Nazareth, born in Bethlehem, crucified on Calvary; who rose from the dead on Easter Sunday and ascended into heaven on Ascension Thursday – this same Jesus, the whole Christ (totus Christus) is now on earth in the Blessed Sacrament of the Eucharist.
Why the Real Presence? It is not hard to see why Christ is now on earth, in the fullness of His humanity and divinity. He promised to be with us all days, even to the end of the world. He wanted us to profess our faith in His Incarnation, our hope in His omnipotence as the Incarnate God, and our love for Him, the Creator who became a man, and who now dwells in our midst, no less truly, although invisibly to our bodily eyes, than He lived visibly among His contemporaries in first century Palestine.
How to Respond to the Real Presence. We commonly and correctly speak of Eucharistic Adoration. We should, because in the Eucharist is present the whole Christ, the Incarnate Son of God.
During His visible stay on earth, He received the adoration of those who believed in Him, What did they believe? They believed that one who looked like a man, spoke and acted like a man, was really the living God.
We believe it is the same Jesus Christ now present in the Holy Eucharist. What do we see? Only what looks like bread and tastes like wine. What do we believe? We believe that this is no longer bread and wine, but Jesus Christ, the man who received His humanity from His Mother Mary, but who is the Second Person of the Trinity who existed from all eternity.
Adoration, therefore, is the primary response of our faith to the Real Presence.
But that is only the foundation. On this worship of adoration, we should build the whole edifice of the spiritual life.
- We should express our love for Him since He is now on earth as the proof of His love for us.
- We should ask Him for what we need, since He promised to give us everything that we ask for in His name.
- We should talk with Him, since that is why He is present. He wants us to be present too, by communicating with Him our deepest thoughts and receiving from Him the illuminations and inspirations that only He can confer.
We should not hesitate to ask Him to work miracles, now, as He had performed wonders during His visible stay in Palestine. All that it takes is faith on our part: faith in His Incarnation, faith in His Real Presence, and faith in His power to do what is humanly impossible, because He is the Almighty One.

WHY PRAY FOR THE DEAD?
Fr. Charles DiMascola
November is a time for us to think about our departed friends and relatives and to pray for them. Why?—to help them out of Purgatory. Now here is something interesting. Non-Catholics do not believe in Purgatory yet they pray for the dead. In fact only the Roman Catholic Church teaches us about the existence of Purgatory and yet even non-Catholics will pray for those who have died. So why do non-Catholics pray for the dead if they don’t believe in Purgatory?! Think about this! If the departed are in Heaven, they don’t need our prayers and if they are in Hell…. well all the prayers in the world won’t help them!
Since everyone is praying for the dead…. lets just see about Purgatory. Is it in the Bible? Of course it is! You see, Purgatory is a name we give to that place and time of purification and perfection that the Bible tells us is needed for Heaven. As the Bible tells us “there shall not enter into it anything defiled (Rev. 21: 27). OK, so we all have to be perfect for Heaven…. but who is perfect and how can we become perfect.
The Bible tells us about certain sins that will not be forgiven, either in this world or the world to come (St. Matt. 12: 32) which means that there obviously is a time and place in the next world where some sins can be forgiven and some not forgiven.
St. Paul even describes for us the fact of a time and place of purification (l Corinthians 3: 13-15) where our lives will be tested and made perfect and where he ends by saying “only as through fire” will we be made perfect. (1 Corinthians 3: 15).
Because Roman Catholics are truly Bible believing Christians, we accept the Bible truth that the dead are able to be freed from some of their imperfections in a place and time of purification so as to be made pure and perfect for Heaven. And since the Bible clearly says that “it is therefore a holy and wholesome thought to pray for the dead that they may be delivered from their sins” (2 Mac. 12: 46) we Bible Believing Catholics pray for our dear departed friends and relatives!
Please know that our prayers and Masses are gifts of great power and love for the departed and so please pray for them often. If we loved them while they were with us, why would we stop now that they have gone ahead of us and need our help? The bottom line: We must continue our love for them by our prayers!
Our Annual St. Nicholas Day Bazaar will take place on Saturday, December 1st starting at 9:00 a.m. Our usual arts and crafts, Polish food sale, Religious goods, Chinese auctions, etc., will be featured.

Remember the Holy Souls in Your Prayers
The Conclusion of the St. Jude Solemn Nine Day Novena
will be highlighted on Monday, October 28th, the Feast of St. Jude,
and will include the veneration of the relic of St. Jude.
The following prayer is said with the Priest at the Mass in the Prayer of the Faithful:
St. Jude, glorious Apostle, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor has caused you to be forgotten by many, the true Church invokes you universally as the Patron of things despaired of; pray for me, who am so miserable; pray for me, that finally I may receive the consolation and the succor of Heaven in all my necessities, tribulations and sufferings, particularly (All pause here in silence to make their request to St. Jude) and that I may bless God with the elect throughout Eternity. Amen!
St. Jude, Apostle, Martyr and relative of our Lord Jesus Christ, of Mary and of Joseph, intercede for us!
St. Jude the oft forgotten We’ve sung our prayer of pleading
Thou shalt remembered be. To thee St. Jude the blest.
We hail thee now in glory, For hearts in sorrow bleeding,
And have recourse to thee. That sorely are distressed;
For help, for the despairing, With thine our prayers are blending
When hopeless seems the task, And hope our hearts doth fill
And from the heart of Jesus On thee St. Jude depending,
Thru thee we favors ask. Resigned to Heaven’s will!
PLEASE NOTE that every day of the month is set aside to pray for a specific priest or deacon of the Franklin County Deanery. Please join in dedicating every day to one of the clergymen designated in our calendar. The intentions for this week are:
|Fr. Aksamit||Deacon Bete||Deacon Nolan||Deacon Culliton||Fr. Bermudez||Deacon O’Connor||Clergy in Purgatory|
