All Soul's Day
Dear Family of Mary!
"Dear children! Today I wish to call you to pray daily for souls in purgatory. For every soul prayer and grace is necessary to reach God and the love of God. By doing this, dear children, you obtain new intercessors who will help you in life to realize that all the earthly things are not important for you, that only Heaven is that for which it is necessary to strive. Therefore, dear children, pray without ceasing that you may be able to help yourselves and the others to whom your prayers will bring joy. Thank you for having responded to my call." (November 6, 1986)
Today the whole Church joins together to pray for the Souls who are in the purifying fires of Purgatory. The Church Suffering needs our intercession. They cannot pray for themselves, and are in need of our prayers. What a joy it is to come to their aid, and hasten their entry into heaven!
Susan Tassone, the great champion of the Souls in Purgatory, has just published a new book of prayers for the Holy Souls: Prayers, Promises and Devotions for the Holy Souls in Purgatory. It is published by Our Sunday Visitor and is available on their website: www.osv.com
This book is packed full of wonderful prayers and devotions for the Souls! I want to excerpt a prayer for the Souls said before the Blessed Sacrament:
Place of Light and Peace
O gentlest Heart of Jesus,
ever present in the Blessed Sacrament,
ever consumed with burning love
for the poor captive souls in purgatory,
have mercy on their souls.
Be not severe in Your judgments,
but let some drops
of your precious Blood
fall upon the devouring flames.
and, O most merciful Savior,
sent Your angels to conduct them
to a place of light and peace. Amen. (p. 99)
In just a few hours, Mirjana will receive another message for us. I will send it out as soon as I can. Have a beautiful day, praying for the Souls!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
