Father James Gardiner, a Franciscan Friar of the Atonement, looks at a piece of art in the Purgatory Chapel at the Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land in Washington Nov. 2, 2021, after celebrating All Souls’ Day Mass. During the pandemic, faith communities have not had the benefit of the rituals for how to deal with the death of loved ones, said Father Gardiner, but All Souls’ Day allowed for a slow reopening of public events that help Christians process and think about death.
