4. Dancing on Friday
For the past two years, I’ve been helping an elderly friend and fellow parishioner of my church write her life story. The local newspaper ran an article last week about it.

5. St. Gertrude’s Prayer for the Holy Souls in Purgatory
This beautiful prayer is one that I say daily but it is an ideal prayer to recite during November, the month of the Holy Souls. According to tradition, our Lord promised St. Gertrude that 1000 souls would be released from purgatory each time it is said devoutly.

Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Most Precious Blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the masses said throughout the world today, for all the holy souls in purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal church, those in my own home and within my family. Amen.

6. Reading/Review Shelf
Angels for Kids – Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle (highly recommend…of course I highly recommend any book Donna-Marie writes!!)
