Praying for the Holy Souls – Part 3

+JMJ+ This is part 3 of a four-part series for November, the month devoted to the Holy Souls in Purgatory, during which we remember in a special way our loved ones who have gone on ahead, by practicing devotions and praying for them. The Holy See extended the indulgences through November because of Covid-19, see notes below for links about that. Also in the links are a couple of articles about Padre Pio and the Holy Souls. In this post are two videos, one about Padre Pio and his intercession for the Holy Souls and some encounters he had with them, and a video from the EWTN show, Living Divine Mercy on Why Purgatory Exists.

Happy and Blessed All Saints’ Day

We’ll continue with our Book of the Month, Sanctity Through the Rosary, during November because I think it is timely and important for all of us to get serious about our faith and our spiritual life. But today is All Saints’ Day and tomorrow is All Souls’ Day, and the whole month is devoted to the Holy Souls, so during November we’ll do things a little differently. I’ll feature something specifically about the Holy Souls, a video or podcast or something, on Mondays, and continue with Sanctity Through the Rosary on Thursdays. We’ll see how that goes. I think both topics are very important for us, especially now. For many of us our spiritual lives need a jump start.
