Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed (All Souls)

1st Reading: Wis 3:1–9
The souls of the just are in the hands of God and no torment shall touch them.

In the eyes of the unwise they appear to be dead. Their going is held as a disaster; it seems that they lose everything by departing from us, but they are in peace.

In this week’s Gospel, the Pharisees tested Jesus to see if He correctly understood the law as they did. Jesus’ simple answer was to “love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.”

1st Reading: Ex 22:20–26
You shall not wrong or oppress a stranger, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt. You shall not harm the widow or the orphan.
