For the year of faith an amazing online email community of over 100, 000 people read the catechism each week. They were part of the largest group in history to study the catechism together.

In November Christians remember their dead. Catholics in particular believe some or many who have died are still being purified so they can cope with the sheer-goodness and overwhelming love of God's presence. Catholics believe their prayers can help the faithful departed pass out of this time of cleansing (purgatory) into heaven.
November is a time to recall in a special way the souls of the faithful departed who've gone before us. Martyrs are among those we venerate, and they came from all walks of life. They were men and women, old and young, laypeople, priests and religious. Martyrdom means bearing witness to Jesus Christ by living, and when necessary dying, for our faith in Jesus Christ. As Jesus said, “Greater love has no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friends” (Jn15:13). He spoke these words before he gave his own life for us on the cross, showing us exactly what he meant.
