Every Nov. 2nd, there is a special indulgence for the souls in purgatory, which is very generous and all the faithful should try to gain.

The Best way to get souls out of Purgatory - The Toties Quoties Indulgence.

It Consists in this:
For Every visit that you do to a Church, to pray for the Holy Souls, if you pray 6 Our Fathers, 6 Hail Marys, and 6 Glory Be, For the Intentions of the Church; You will gain a plenary Indulgence which is applicable to the souls in purgatory. It is also required that you go to confession and communion.

You can gain this indulgence, as many times as you the act. Hence the name “toties Quoties” which means “as often as it is done”.

And you don’t have to visit different Churches. You can visit the one Church, get out of it, (at least to the vestibule), and then come back in, and that counts as a different visit.

A few Notes:
1.-You have to actually move your lips while you pray them, but it doesn’t have to be out loud.

2.- You can pray them in a group with other people as well. (BUT IF YOU ARE IN A CHURCH WHERE OTHER PEOPLE ARE PRAYING IS BETTER NOT TO PRAY OUT LOUD.)

3.- Don’t forget that the intention of the 6 Pater, Ave and Gloria, is NOT for the Holy Souls, but for the Church. But our intentions as we pray for the
Church, is to gain the indulgences given for the Holy Souls.

4.- You might want to finish with an “Eternal Rest Grant unto them O Lord.”

5.- You need to go to confession a week before, on the same day (Nov. 2) or a week after; and Communion on the same day, the day before, or the week after.

6.- Finally, It is commendable that you try to be sorry and willing to amend not only of mortal sins, but also of any venial sins or attachments to sin, that you might be aware of.
