Holy Souls in Purgatory
There are never any words you can offer someone to comfort them when a loved one passes away. Reading about the Holy Souls definitely helps us put things in perspective. The common message from the Holy Souls is that instead of tears they need Holy Masses and prayers offered for them. We should never stop even if it’s been 20 years because our time is different than theirs and if the Holy Soul has been released and is now rejoicing in Heaven, your offerings will be given to another Holy Soul in desperate need. There are many souls released from Purgatory during the Consecration of the Mass than at any time. Christmas is the day of the year when most souls are delivered; then feast days of Our Lord, Our Lady and great Saints. Souls receive much grace from prayers offered for them on their birthdays, day of baptism and anniversary of death. The Holy Souls are filled with an immense desire to repay the favors done them. When they are finally released from their pains and enjoy the beatitude of Heaven, far from forgetting their friends on Earth, their gratitude knows no bounds. Prostrate before the Throne of God, they never cease to pray for those who helped them. By their prayers they shield their friends from the dangers and protect them from the evils that threaten them. They will never cease these prayers until they see their benefactors safely in Heaven, and they will be forever their dearest, sincerest and best friends.
