Remembering Loved Ones with Flower Arrangements on All Souls’ Day
All Souls’ Day is a day of remembrance and paying respect for the souls of all loved ones who have passed away. Observed principally by the Roman Catholic Church, some Anglican Churches also celebrate it.
It is believed that upon death souls that have not been cleansed of sin are unable to enter Heaven and so they go into purgatory where sanctification is carried out. Souls in purgatory must suffer so that they can be purged of sin. Prayer from the living and Masses held in honor of the dead help remove the stain of sin to enable souls to enter the gates of Heaven. The Feast of All Souls reminds us to live holy lives and that there will be purification of the souls of those destined for Heaven.
All Soul’s Day is always November 2 (the 3rd if the 2nd is a Sunday), following All Saints Day. The Feast of All Saints celebrates those who have gone to heaven, especially those martyred in the Catholic Church. The day purposely follows All Saint’s Day in order to shift the focus from those in heaven to those in purgatory.
On this day it is quite common to visit graves to pay our respects, bringing along flower arrangements to show our love and respect for our dear departed. Flower arrangements for this occasion can be styles as sheafs, wreaths, sprays. One of the flower arrangements available from FlowersGiftBasketIdeas is this elegant and traditional A-line bowl arrangement consisting of Gerberas, Delphiniums, Roses, Freesias accentuated by lush foliage.
Flower arrangements may also be delivered to your home or to a particular grave site, as needed.
