All Souls' Day commemorates the 'faithful departed'. This is a day of remembrance for friends and loved ones who have passed away and is purposely separate from an All Saints' Day service in order to move the focus from the saints to ordinary people. For Christians, remembrance is an expression through prayer of our continuing love and support for those who have died, an expression that faith, hope and love do not end in death. Our prayer declares our belief that life and love transcend the grave, because of Christ who died and was raised from the grave. So on All Souls' Day we have a chance to pray for, and lovingly remember, those who are no longer with us and to remember that, in Christ, we are still united as one body.
