REMEMBERING THE POOR SOULS


Blood of Christ, freeing souls from purgatory, save us!


"It is a good and wholesome thing to pray for the dead." (2 Macc 12:43)



"We owe unspeakable gratitude to God, therefore, for allowing us to do more for our departed friends and relatives than to merely mourn over their graves. For by helping them, we obtain for ourselves a right to the special protection of God, and the angels and the saints, who rejoice whenever they can welcome a newcomer into their midst. Most of all, however, we gain friends among the Holy Souls themselves, and when they reach heaven, they will surely remember and help us."
~~~Provincial Council of Vienna 1858
