Rorate Caeli

All Souls' Day and first week in November: Plenary indulgence reminder and the Rorate Caeli Purgatorial Society

This is our monthly reminder to please enroll Souls of the Rorate Caeli Purgatorial Society. We now have 96 saying monthly and weekly traditional Latin Masses for the Souls.

Also, please, we beg you, don't forget the poor Souls on All Souls Day tomorrow (Saturday). Besides getting Masses said for them, as we do here, the best way you can help them tomorrow is this: Plenary Indulgence for each day of the First Full Week in November.

But remember:

    • * Make a sacramental confession within a week of All Souls Day

      • * For a plenary indulgence be free from all attachment to sin, even venial sin (otherwise, the indulgence is partial, not plenary, “full”).

      Priests: The Souls still need more of you saying Mass for them! Please email me to offer your services. There's nothing special involved -- all you need to do is offer a weekly or monthly TLM with the intention: "For the Souls enrolled in the Rorate Caeli Purgatorial Society."

      How to enroll souls: please email me at and submit as follows: "Name, State, Country." If you want to enroll entire families, simply write in the email: "The Jones family, Ohio, USA". Individual names are preferred. Be greedy -- send in as many as you wish and forward this posting to friends as well.

      Please consider forwarding this Society to your family and friends, announcing from the pulpit during Holy Mass or listing in your church bulletin. We need to spread the word and relieve more suffering souls.

      Please pray for the enrolled Souls and the 96 holy priests saying Traditional Masses for the Society:

      "For all the souls enrolled in the Rorate Caeli Purgatorial Society: Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May their souls and the souls of all the Faithful departed rest in peace. Amen."

      Then ...

      Almighty and ever living God,
      we ask Thy blessing upon the priests
      who offer Masses for the Purgatorial Society.
      Give them a greater awareness of the grace
      that Thou dost pour out through the Sacraments,
      and by their devout celebration of the Sacred Mysteries,
      increase in them a love for Thee.
      Give strength to Thy priests, O Shepherd of the flock;
      when they are in doubt, give them the assurance of faith,
      and in Thy goodness confirm them as heralds of Thy Truth
      to all who seek to follow in Thy path.
      We ask this through Our Lord Jesus Christ, Eternal Priest,
      Who lives and reigns with Thee in the unity with the Holy Ghost,
      God, for ever and ever. Amen.
