O Immaculate Virgin Mary,
Mother of Our Lord Jesus and our Mother,
penetrated with the most lively confidence in thine all-powerful and
never-failing intercession, manifested so often through the Miraculous Medal,
we thy loving and trustful children implore thee to obtain for us the graces
and favors we ask during this novena,
if they be beneficial to our immortal souls,
and the souls for whom we pray.
(Here form your petition)
Thou knowest, O Mary, how often our souls have been the sanctuaries of thy Son
who hates iniquity.
Obtain for us then a deep hatred of sin and that purity of heart which will
attach us to God alone so that our every thought, word and deed may tend to
His greater glory.
Obtain for us also a spirit of prayer and self-denial that we may recover by
penance what we have lost by sin and at length attain to that blessed abode
where thou art the Queen of angels and of men.

And the Red Sox are the top bidder for the right to negotiate with Daisuke Matsuzaka.
Here is another image, a reminder of why it is my favorite:
Even though Hallowmas is over with the passing of the Octave of All Souls, remember that the entire month of November is devoted to the Holy Suffering Souls by the Church. And this year, Advent does not start until after November is over.
So please pray for the Poor Souls.
