Celebration of a Gregorian Series of Masses
(30 Masses for 30 consecutive days) Pope Saint Gregory the Great (from whom the Gregorian names comes) had a vision of soul who was immediately freed from Purgatory following the celebration of 30 consecutive Masses. The practice of celebrating Gregorian Masses was approved by a decree of the Sacred Congregation of Indulgences in 1884. For the Gregorian Series of Masses, it is customary to give a more substantial offering than for a series of sequential Masses.
