Some Reading for All Souls Day

For those of you looking for some All Souls Day inspired reading, I wanted to give some linkages back to some of the pieces we have shared on this day over the past few years.


The "Hymnus ad Exequias Defuncti" of Prudentius


Liturgical Notes for All Souls Day


The Dies Irae Sequence

Finally, something not specific to All Souls but pertinent nonetheless:

On the Use of Black Vestments for Masses for the Dead

On the Use of Unbleached Beeswax Candles for Masses for the Dead
