Fauré Requiem offertory modification

Did anyone ever notice that the words “omnium fidelium” (all the faithful) are missing from Fauré’s offertory in the Requiem?

I know he took issue with “Dies iræ”; maybe he likewise disagreed with praying for “the faithful”, rather than just “the souls of the dead”?

I've noticed that, but since I didn't know he had issues with the Dies Irae I didn't know what to think.
