The Church dedicates the month of November to praying for all the faithful departed, that God may hasten their period of purification in order to arrive in heaven - “May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.”

Let us also ask this month for St. Charles Borromeo’s intercession, the patron saint of seminarians, that Christ may inspire young men whom He is calling to the priesthood to respond generously and courageously.
