I had a workshop to attend for work, the kids came with me and read and narrated their religion reading in the car. Then, off to Homeschool Group Learning ( Winslow Homer and Charles Russell) and delivery of junk mail (Thomas and Anthony’s mid week “job”, but we all help).
We ended up at the local Pioneer Cemetery.
Said prayers for the souls in purgatory and looked at the tombstones. At the history of the area. The cemetery was begun in 1888, when the area was a small township in a rural area. Suburbs now.
Interesting to see familar names on the tombstones – we recognized the names of several suburbs and streets.
And gained the ” indulgence, applicable only to the Souls in Purgatory, granted to the faithful, who devoutly visit a cemetery and pray, even if only mentally, for the departed. The indulgence is plenary each day from the first to the eighth of November; on other days of the year it is partial”. Fr. Pat’s Place
