All Souls Day

One of my favorite days on the liturgical calendar. We all have loved ones to remember today, and a good thing to remember is the plenary indulgence you can gain for them:

Plenary indulgence
A plenary indulgence, applicable only to the Poor Souls, is granted to those who visit any parish church or public oratory on All Souls Day, and there recite one Our Father and one Credo.

A plenary indulgence, applicable only to the Poor Souls, can be gained when one devoutly visits a cemetery, prays (even mentally only) for the eternal rest of poor souls, and fulfills the regular requirements for an indulgence. A plenary indulgence can be gained for this work each day from November 1 to November 8.
