All souls day celebrated

Staff Reporter, Bhopal

Archdiocese of Bhopal celebrated “All Souls Day” on 2nd November 2017 by offering special Mass and Prayers for the departed souls at Bhadbada Cemetery at 7:30 am and at 4:30 pm in Bairagarh Cemetery.

Archbishop Most Rev. Leo Cornelio said in his homily that any death has a purpose in life. Today we remember our beloved ones who passed away from us. Though their deaths were very saddening and unforgettable yet we have come together to pray for them is our faith in Jesus who said ‘I am the Resurrection and Life’.

Those who live on earth, can amend their sinful lives by righteous way of living but the dead can’t do so. They can’t pray for themselves and do anything to repair their sins. But we can.

We are expected to pray for our loved ones and do charitable works in the name of them, that through our efforts, God will forgive their sins and give them eternal life. This is our Christian Faith he added. Fr. Maria Stephen said that whether we are alive or dead, we are all belonged to one family, the body of Christ.

Thus we need to pray for the departed souls everyday for their Eternal Rest. The most common idea of death is that it is the end of life. Many fear death because it involves venturing into the realm of the unknown.

Today’s celebration reminds us that Death is not the end but merely a passage to eternal life. Fr Arul Samy and Fr Edward Francis thanked all those who helped to celebrate holy mass more prayerful. There were 2000 people present to pray for the departed brothers and sisters.
