Please don’t forget them this month! Advent is a time of preparation for us, and we can do a great good for the souls who await the joys of heaven! Remember them this month, too!
Our Lady of Medjugorje told the visionary, Marijana, that the most souls are released on Christmas Day from the bounds of Purgatory.
If you are interested in reading an article on things you can do for the souls, click HERE. This is a wonderful article, even if it is suggested that you purchase an author’s books on Purgatory. I would give that serious consideration. Susan Tassone will help you to understand the plight of the souls in Purgatory and their joy when they are released.
We are entering the “Year of Mercy.” Acts of Mercy, such as praying for the souls will be repaid to you. God cannot be outdone in His Mercy. Pray for your family members, even those who lived generations before you. One day we will meet in heaven, and the souls whose release you secure through prayer, pentinence, acts of mercy and love will be most grateful to you. Imagine the joy of seeing God face to face. They will become your intercessors, too.
Go back in your family tree and pray for those you know by name. Pray for those you don’t know by name. You might assume that they have already reached heaven. That might not be true. They might need one rosary or one Mass offered for them to be released. No prayer goes unused. If they have already reached the joys of heaven, God will use those prayers for someone else.
Help to end the suffering of the souls in Purgatory this Advent. Open the gates for them through your prayers. You will be blessed!
The Prayer of St. Gertrude
This prayer is said to release 1,000 souls each time it is prayed.
Eternal Father, I offer You the Most Precious Blood of Your Divine Son Jesus, in union with all of the Masses said today, in reparation for sin, for the Holy Souls in Purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the Universal Church, those within my own home, and within my family. Amen.
