All Souls Day History

The Catholic Church says that believers' deeds on earth can aid in the purification of the souls in purgatory on the eve of All Souls Day. Its teaching is also founded on the custom of praying for the deceased, which is described in 2 Maccabees 12:42–46. The catacomb inscriptions, with their ongoing petitions for the comfort of the gone, and the early liturgies, which frequently include memorials for the deceased, provide enough proof of the practise of praying for the dead in the West.

Tertullian, Cyprian, and other early Western Fathers observed that early Christians frequently prayed for the deceased. The doctrine that underlies the celebration holds that those souls who upon leaving the body are not perfectly cleansed from venial sins or have not sufficiently atoned for previous transgressions are barred from the Beatific Vision, and that the faithful on earth can assist them by praying, performing good deeds of almsgiving, and most importantly, by participating in the Mass sacrifice.

It became common practise in Benedictene monasteries as early as the sixth century CE to designate a day to remember the deceased, which was thereafter fixed for the Monday following Pentecost. Although different dates were established by other organisations, Saint Odilo of Cluny eventually codified the day after All Saints' Day — All Souls' Day — as the occasion for all members of monasteries dependent on the Abbey of Cluny to pray for the unsaved who had died away.

Other monasteries gradually adopted the new time and practises, and eventually the Western Church as a whole. It is an optional ceremony known as "The Commemoration of the Faithful Departed" in the Church of England. In light of the theological beliefs in the resurrection of the body and the Communion of Saints, Anglicans see All Souls' Day as a continuation of the celebration of All Saints' Day that serves as a memorial to those who have passed away.

Priests were given the opportunity to lead three masses on All Souls' Day, in part because of the events surrounding World War I, namely the large number of casualties and the number of destroyed churches. This tradition is still followed today.
