With her powerful intercession before her Lord and Spouse, Mother Church seeks to help all those who are still in Purgatory, so that they may soon reach the fellowship of the blessed. A day of the Church’s loving care for the dead. It is a compassionate and active love.
The Church knows that she can help the Poor Souls in Purgatory through her intercession, especially through the sacrifice of the Holy Mass. On the 1st of November the Church allows every priest to celebrate the Holy Sacrifice three times, so that the flood of graces may flow down from the altars in the fullest possible measure and so that as many souls as possible may enter Heaven today. On the 2nd of November, the Church gives the faithful the power to grant an unlimited number of plenary indulgences to the souls in Purgatory.
