Monday is All Souls Day: Pray for your Dearly Departed; Pray for the Souls of Priests in this, the Year of the Priest

First, remember that you can gain indulgences on Monday, November 2, All Souls Day and the days following.

Second, 5 November is a first Thursday. You can gain a plenary indulgence during this year for Priests. It is not commonly known that you can apply plenary indulgences to the souls of those in Purgatory

Third, would it not be a good idea in this Year for Priests, during the week after All Souls, for this 1st Thursday, to pray in a special way for the souls of deceased priests?
Tip O' the Hat to Fr. Z!

Here are 2 links to stories about a Minnesota Priest who passed away and who may be an intercessor, Fr Didier...
Perhaps you can post a story about him on all Souls day in the year of the Priest.

The first link requires registration. But you can view the article without registering by using Google search "Darin Didier" and clicking on the link for echopress (the local newspaper in Alex MN)

I got in with no trouble. Thank you Oh so much for that Echo Press story. I had the WCCO one from August already posted.

It's a perfect story for All Soul's Day.
