November 02,2007(Sunday) - Early morning of All Soul's Day we woke up early for the mass together with my grandmother. Its kinda quite tired about yesterday's activity in the cemetery. While we're walking to church, the place was still quite peaceful and the air was very fresh then.

All Souls Day follows All Saint's Day , and commemorates the faithful departed, those who die in God's faith and friendship. However, Catholics believe that not all those who die in God's grace are immediately ready for the Beatific vision,

All Souls is the day to remember, pray for, and offer requiem masses up for these faithful departed in the state of purification. Typically Christians will take this day to offer prayers up on behalf of their departed relatives and friends. Others may remember influential individuals that they never knew personally, such as presidents, musicians, etc. This may be done in the form of the Office of the Dead (Defunctorum officium), i.e. a prayer service offered in memory of departed loved ones. Often this office is prayed on the anniversary (or eve) of the death of a loved one, or on All Souls' Day.

Praying for the dead is actually borrowed from Judaism, as

indicated in 2 Maccabees 12:41-42.
