PRAYER CAMPAIGN FOR ALL SOULS IN PURGATORY

Big picture
To prepare for All Souls Day and throughout the month of November, members of the VEYM in union with the Church are called to commemorate those who have departed from this life but have yet attained the blessings of life everlasting. The Church reminds us that through praying and doing acts of sacrifice to pray for the souls in purgatory, we have the privilege to expedite their union with the Merciful Father.

As such, during the month of November, all members of the VEYM are invited to do the following daily to pray for all souls:

a. Pray 1 Our Father, 1 Hail Mary and 1 Glory Be.
b. Pray “Eternal rest grant to them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.”
c. Pray to the intention of the Holy Father.All League of Chapters Presidents and Chapter Presidents are invited to participate and push hard this campaign at your level throughout the month of November. Praying for the departed souls is a responsibility of VEYM and in doing so, bring relief to the suffering souls in purgatory and hasten their journey to eternity. For all questions, please contact the National Executive Committee via Brother Vincente Bùi Nguyễn Minh Duy Henry, SCJ at henry.nguyen@veym.net.
