“Since the 16th century Catholic piety has assigned entire months to special devotions. As a reminder of our duty to pray for the suffering faithful in Purgatory, the Church has dedicated the month of November to the Holy Souls. The Holy Souls are those who have died in the state of grace but who are not yet free from all punishment due to their unforgiven venial sins and all other sins already forgiven for which satisfaction is still to be made. They are certain of entering Heaven, but first they must suffer in Purgatory. The Holy Souls cannot help themselves because for them the night has come, when no man can work (John 9:4). It is our great privilege of brotherhood that we can shorten their time of separation from God by our prayers, good works, and, especially, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.”
Prayer: May the souls of the faithfully departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
After you say the Grace Before Meals prayer, add a short prayer for the poor souls. This becomes a new family tradition and a good habit to pray for the poor souls in purgatory at every meal time.

Prayer of St. Thomas
Grant me, O Lord my God, a mind to know you, a heart to seek you, wisdom to find you, conduct pleasing to you, faithful perseverance in waiting for you, and a hope of finally embracing you. Amen.
We offer up all our endeavors to the Most High, the source and summit of all that is True, Good, and Beautiful - God! We pray that we may SEE what He is showing us, HEAR what He is telling us, LEARN about Him (and ourselves in the process), and SERVE Him by bringing His light to others.
"Have no anxiety about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will keep your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, do; and the God of peace will be with you." - St. Paul: Philippians 4:6-9
