All Souls Day
The commemoration of all the Faithful Departed is observed on this day, All Souls Day. The dead were prayed for since the earliest days of Christianity, but at different times. St. Odilo of the Abbey of Cluny is thought to have fixed this date in the 10th century so that monks in the abbey could offer special prayers for the dead on the day after All Saints Day, November 1st.
