Prayer for the holy souls



In the month of November we pray especially for the souls in purgatory, but we should pray for them always. They are forgotten by many here on earth but we can be their good friends by praying and offering Masses and good works for them. In this meditation we consider:

  • Why some souls go to purgatory
  • How our prayers and suffrages can help them
  • The two principal pains these souls undergo and their great happiness
  • What we can learn from apparitions of two souls in purgatory, one to St Margaret Mary Alacoque and another related in the book Hungry Souls by Gerard van den Aardweg

Journey into Truth is a set of DVDs of instructions in the Catholic faith, with 24 half-hour talks based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
