All Souls Day Readings

Question What are the proper readings for November 2, All Souls Day?  I have been unable to find a web site that lists the same readings and my parish didn't use the readings printed in the Missal.   Are churches free to use different readings?

Answer

For the 1969 Missal:

  There are two main options for this feast day's readings. The first reading can be either Wisdom 3:1-9 or Isaiah 25:6, 7-9. The second reading can be either Romans 6:3-9 or 1 Corinthians 15:20-24, 25-28. The Gospel can be either St. Matthew 25:31-46 or St. John 11:17-27. It is also permissible to choose readings from the Masses for the Dead. There are several options to choose from which can all be found in a Missal.

For the 1962 Missal:

There are three Masses that can be used on all Soul's Day. The readings for the first Mass are 1 Corinthians 15:51-57 and St. John 5:25-29. The readings for the second Mass are Machabees 12:43-46 and St. John 6:37-40. The Readings for the third Mass are Apocalypse 14:13 and St. John 6:51-55.
