"Each day be conscious of your duty to be a saint. A saint! And that doesn't mean doing strange things. It means a daily struggle in the interior life and in heroically fulfilling your duty right through to the end.”
On November 2, All Souls Day, the Church reminds us of the need to pray for those who have died and are now being purified. Some quotes about this custom from the Catechism of the Catholic Church and from Saint Josemaria.
