All Soul's Day
Today is the Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed or All Souls Day.
The Collect from the Roman Breviary:
O God, the Creator and Redeemer of all them that believe : grant unto the souls of thy servants and handmaidens the remission of all their sins ; that as they have ever desired thy merciful pardon, so by the supplications of their brethren they may receive the same. Who livest and reignest with the Father, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.
The Office for the Dead from the Latin/English Primer, 1559.
All Souls Day from the Catholic Encyclopædia.
All Souls Day from Wikipedia.
