ALL SOULS MASSES AND INDULGENCE

There is only one location in Georgia that will observe All Souls Day this year. There will be a solemn high Requiem Mass at the parish of St Francis de Sales in Mableton on All Souls Day (Monday November 3rd) at 7:30 pm. There will be 5 low masses that day spaced out all day long, so it will be easy to attend mass. As usual confessions are heard every day at this parish before every mass. This makes it easy to help earn the Plenary Indulgence available this day. Please note that Sunday November 2nd is the 21st Sunday After Pentecost- All Souls Day is transferred to Monday.

All SOULS INDULGENCE

The Month of the Holy Souls
The Faithful may gain a plenary/partial indulgence for the Poor Souls in early November. On All Souls Day itself, you can gain a plenary indulgence for the departed if you visit a parish church and recite the Pater Noster and the Credo. The usual 4 conditions apply ( see below). Besides visiting a church on All Souls day you can gain a plenary indulgence from November 1st through the 8th on the following conditions: a plenary indulgence, applicable only to the Poor Souls in Purgatory, is granted to those who visit a cemetery and pray, even if only mentally, for the departed. Partial indulgences are granted to those who recite Lauds or Vespers of the Office of the Dead, and to those who recite the prayer, “Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace.” According to the Enchiridion of Indulgences issued in 1999 by the Sacred Penitentiary, “To acquire a plenary indulgence, it is necessary to perform the work to which the indulgence is attached and to fulfill the following four conditions "These are always referred to as the usual conditions": sacramental confession, Eucharistic Communion, and prayer for the intention of the Sovereign Pontiff. Finally it is further required that all attachment to sin, even venial sin, be absent.” The condition of sacramental confession may be fulfilled 20 days before or after the performance of the above-mentioned prayers. However, it is fitting that Communion be received and the prayer for the Holy Father’s intentions be said on the same day the work is performed. A single sacramental confession suffices for gaining multiple plenary indulgences, although Communion must be received and prayer for the Holy Father’s intentions must be recited for the gaining of each plenary indulgence.

BLESSING OF HERBS & FRUITS ON THE ASSUMPTION


Priest Blessing herbs & fruits on the Feast Day in
the sacristy


THE ONLY KNOWN MASS IN GEORGIA FOR THE FEAST OF THE ASSUMPTION WILL BE AT ST FRANCIS DE SALES IN MABLETON (ATLANTA DIOCESE) . SOLEMN HIGH MASS AT 7:30PM.  DIRECTIONS SEE WWW.FRANCISDESALES.COM OR CALL (770) 948-6888




HERBS & FRUITS ARE BLESSED ON THIS DAY-ANY PRIEST MAY USE THE ROMAN RITUAL TO PERFORM THESE BLESSINGS -BELOW IS THE ENGLISH TO FOLLOW ALONG WITH THE PRIEST


The blessing of herbs was reserved only to the feast of the Assumption. Herbs had not our restricted English meaning but included all kinds of cultivated and wild flowers, especially those which in some way had a symbolic relation to our Lady. The people brought herbs to church on her feast not only to secure for themselves another blessed object, but also to make of the occasion a harvest festival of thanksgiving to God for His great bounty manifested in the abundant fruits of the earth. The herbs were placed on the altar, and even beneath the altar-cloths, so that from this close contact with the Eucharist they might receive a special consecration, over and above the ordinary sacramental blessing of the Church.}
After the Asperges if it is a Sunday, otherwise immediately before Mass, the priest, standing before the altar and facing the people who hold the herbs and fruits in their hands, says in a clear voice:
P: Our help is in the name of the Lord.
All: Who made heaven and earth.
Psalm 64
P: To you we owe our hymn of praise, O God, in Sion; to you must vows be fulfilled, you who hear prayers.
All: To you all flesh must come* because of wicked deeds.
P: We are overcome by our sins; * it is you who pardon them.
All: Happy the man you choose, * and bring to dwell in your courts.
P: May we be filled with the good things of your house, * the holy things of your temple.
All: With awe-inspiring deeds of justice you answer us, * O God our Savior,
P: The hope of all the ends of the earth * and of the distant seas.
All: You set the mountains in place by your power, * you who are girt with might;
P: You still the roaring of the seas, * the roaring of their waves and the tumult of the peoples.
All: And the dwellers at the earth's ends are in fear at your marvels; * the farthest east and west you make resound with joy.
P: You have visited the land and watered it; * greatly have you enriched it.
All: God's watercourses are filled; you have prepared the grain. * Thus have you prepared the land:
P: Drenching its furrows, * breaking up its clods,
All: Softening it with showers, * blessing its yield.
P: You have crowned the year with your bounty, * and your paths overflow with a rich harvest;
All: The untilled meadows overflow with it, * and rejoicing clothes the hills.
P: The fields are garmented with flocks and the valleys blanketed with grain. * They shout and sing for joy.
All: Glory be to the Father.
P: As it was in the beginning.
P: The Lord will be gracious.
All: And our land will bring forth its fruit.
P: You water the mountains from the clouds.
All: The earth is replenished from your rains.
P: Giving grass for cattle.
All: And plants for the benefit of man.
P: You bring wheat from the earth.
All: And wine to cheer man's heart.
P: Oil to make his face lustrous.
All: And bread to strengthen his heart.
P: He utters a command and heals their suffering.
All: And snatches them from distressing want.
P: Lord, heed my prayer.
All: And let my cry be heard by you.
P: The Lord be with you.
All: May He also be with you.
Let us pray.
Almighty everlasting God, who by your word alone brought into being the heavens, earth, sea, things seen and things unseen, and garnished the earth with plants and trees for the use of man and beast; who appointed each species to bring forth fruit in its kind, not only for the food of living creatures, but for the healing of sick bodies as well; with mind and word we urgently call on you in your great kindness to bless + these various herbs and fruits, thus increasing their natural powers with the newly given grace of your blessing. May they keep away disease and adversity from men and beasts who use them in your name; through Christ our Lord.
All: Amen.
Let us pray.
God, who through Moses, your servant, directed the children of Israel to carry their sheaves of new grain to the priests for a blessing, to pluck the finest fruits of the orchard, and to make merry before you, the Lord their God; hear our supplications, and shower blessings + in abundance upon us and upon these bundles of new grain, new herbs, and this assortment of produce which we gratefully present to you on this festival, blessing + them in your name. Grant that men, cattle, flocks, and beasts of burden find in them a remedy against sickness, pestilence, sores, injuries, spells, against the fangs of serpents or poisonous creatures. May these blessed objects be a protection against diabolical mockery, cunning, and deception wherever they are kept, carried, or otherwise used. Lastly, through the merits of the blessed Virgin Mary, whose Assumption we are celebrating, may we all, laden with the sheaves of good works, deserve to be taken up to heaven; through Christ our Lord.
All: Amen.
Let us pray.
God, who on this day raised up to highest heaven the rod of Jesse, the Mother of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, that by her prayers and patronage you might communicate to our mortal nature the fruit of her womb, your very Son; we humbly implore you to help us use these fruits of the soil for our temporal and everlasting welfare, aided by the power of your Son and the prayers of His glorious Mother; through Christ our Lord.
All: Amen.
And may the blessing of almighty God, Father, Son, + and Holy Spirit, come upon these creatures and remain always.
All: Amen.
They are sprinkled with holy water and incensed.
