All Souls Day

 

Today we left our usual curriculum and talked about this day in the church year.

 

On this day in particular, we pray for the dead. We know that our prayers help those in purgatory.

 

How do we know this?

 

Check this out the2nd  book of Macabeees (verses 38-46 at this link in the 12th chapter of 2 Macabees

 

Besides answering lots of questions about purgatory, we gathered up the names of the children’s dead relatives and wrote them on the board. Then we all got down on the floor and said the rosary together, and after each decade we read some of the names.

 

Not sure how to do the rosary but love computers?
