A Christian duty towards the souls in purgatory
The Powerful intercession of the Holy Souls in Purgatory for their benefactors
The Holy Souls in Purgatory are not able to pray for themselves or do anything at all to relieve their suffering: They rely on our prayers and efforts to help them. It is permissible to believe that they can pray for their benefactors. St. John Vianney said: “If one knew what we may obtain from God by the intercession of the Poor Souls, they would not be so much abandoned. Let us pray a great deal for them, they will pray for us.” St. Theresa of Avila (Spain) said that she always obtained the favours, which she asked from God, through the intercession of the Poor Souls in Purgatory. We must help
the Holy Souls in Purgatory. In the bible it says that he, who stops (closes) his ears to the cry of the poor, shall cry himself and shall not be heard.
Purgatory is real and is alluded to in the bible
Purgatory is part of Catholic doctrine today and always has been from the earliest days of theChurch. In addition it is mentioned in the Old Testament as well. The doctrine of Purgatory will not change in the future. See on this webpage the reference to Purgatory from Our Lady of Fatima. When we die we can no longer pray for ourselves, but others can pray for us. That there is a place which we call Purgatory is alluded to in the bible in these words: “It is a holy and wholesome thing to pray for the dead, that they may be loosed from their sins.” (II Macab. XII., 46)
The following testimony was received on email. My mom used to pray the prayers in the book Read or Rue it, and she also encouraged us to do the same.I never got to pray it until the time when my mom passed away. I was sorting through her things, and was hoping that I would chance upon a letter from my mom, but I came across this book instead, so I thought that maybe this is my mom’s message for me to pray the prayers in the book. From then on, I have been helped by the Holy Souls in Purgatory in smalland big things. Thank you mom, and thank you for the Holy Souls in Purgatory. Several times I have been helped. I am from the Philippines. Manila is notorious for horrendous traffic and finding parking spaces especially in December. If we can, we avoid travelling to Manila around this time. However on December 9, last year, our uncle died, and we had to attend the wake in Manila. We had no choice, so we had to brave the horrible traffic in Manila. Our flight was delayed that day. The estimated arrival was at 3pm. we arrived at 8pm instead. Because of the delayed flights, the airport was jam-packed with passengers! The taxi we hailed refused us at first. The driver said ,”Ma’am it took me four hours for a route that usually takes me 30 minutes only. I am sorry I will never ferry passengers in the city of Manila. I pleaded with him, in these words, “please drive us there. We have already been delayed for five hours. We are already tired”. The driver took pity on us, and said “ok I do not know what time we will arrive in your place. To which I told him ,”manalig at magdasal Lang tayo ,Manong , dasal tayo sa mga Holy souls in Purgatory..(Have faith and pray to the Holy Souls in Purgatory.) The driver was very hesitant, but he took pity, especially when he learned that we had come to Manila for a relative’s burial. Upon leaving the airport, true enough the cars were not moving, and I could hear the driver starting to grumble”sabi I Ko na nga ba… ..(“This is what I said…). My sister who was with me, started praying for and to the Holy Souls in Purgatory. Lo and behold, five minutes afterwards, it was as though somebody had cleared the road for us. We were moving so fast, no stops ,no traffic. The driver was so amazed that we took only 30 minutes to arrive at our destination. He could not believe what had just happened and he said “Ma’am tama kayo manalig Lang,,Christian Po ba kayo? Ma’am, you are right! Just pray and have faith. Are you a Christian?
