"All Soul's Eve"
« on: November 01, 2009, 05:46:25 AM »

The ancient Church year calendar for more more than a milennia and a half had "All Hallow's Eve," or "Hallow e'en," as representing the last opportunity for devils and wicked men to do their work for the next "day" is  "All Saints' Day," when the devil is bound and God rules in all the world through His saints.  What is often forgotten is the day following, which is referred to in Loreena McKennitt's song:  "All Soul's Eve"  This last great day is "All Soul's Day," still kept on some Church calenders.  It is to celebrate the day when all will flow in the Spirit of God, the Savior of All having finished His transformative work!  This is another proof that the Church in the beginning, at least for the first 500 years or more, held to the Salvation of all.
I went to church; but, the Church wasn't on the program!  JESUS WANTS HIS BODY BACK!!  MEET WITHOUT HUMAN HEADSHIP!!!

The first "All Soul's Day," was 998 AD on limited scale. In the 14th century it became a official day in the whole Roman Catholic Church.
It's a special day or remebrance/praying for people that died religious and are not yet with God (very likely means in purgatory-> Concilie of Trente (1545-1563)) On that day during the sermon all names of the religious people that died that year are mentioned.
Praying for the dead started 2th century BC based on 2 Maccabees 12,43-45 in the belief that God would forgive their sins.
43 He then took up a collection among all his soldiers, amounting to two thousand silver drachmas, which he sent to Jerusalem to provide for an expiatory sacrifice. In doing this he acted in a very excellent and noble way, inasmuch as he had the resurrection of the dead in view;
44 for if he were not expecting the fallen to rise again, it would have been useless and foolish to pray for them in death.
45 But if he did this with a view to the splendid reward that awaits those who had gone to rest in godliness, it was a holy and pious thought.
1 Timothy 2:3-4  ...God our Savior;  Who will have all men to be saved...
John 12:47  And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
Romans 4:5 But to the one who does not work, but believes in the one who declares the ungodly righteous ...
