In his closing comments, he noted that in this month of November, «the liturgy invites us to pray for the deceased.»
“Let us not forget those who have loved us and have preceded us in faith, and also those whom no-one remembers; the Eucharistic celebration is the best spiritual aid we can offer to their souls,» he said.
The Pope also made particular reference to the victims of the recent earthquake in Central Italy.
