Praying for the Holy Souls in Purgatory

+JMJ+ During November the Catholic Book of the Month series continues on Thursdays and on Mondays we’ll be focusing on the Holy Souls. Tonight we have a video, Susan Tassone, the Purgatory Lady, being interviewed on EWTN Live with Fr. Mitch Pacwa, SJ. (Yes, a Jesuit and he’s one of the good ones.) ;) I dearly love Fr. Mitch.

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.

Book of the Month, March 2021 – Part 2

+JMJ+ Welcome! It’s time for part 2 of our second Catholic Book of the Month, Praying with Jesus and Faustina During Lent and in Times of Suffering, by Susan Tassone. (Seems to me we could have used this book for the whole year of 2020, right on up to the current Lenten season and, undoubtedly, it will be useful for the rest of the year and well beyond.) There will be notes and links at the end of this post.

Praying for the Holy Souls, Praying for Despairing Souls

Tonight I watched EWTN Live on Ash Wednesday as Fr. Mitch Pacwa interviewed Susan Tassone, author of many books about the Holy Souls in Purgatory. Her latest book, The Saint Faustina Prayer Book for the Holy Souls, is due to be released in April. Tassone made a study of Saint Faustina’s writings on Purgatory in her Diary: Divine Mercy in My Soul, and collects them in her book, along with prayers and novenas. I’m looking forward to getting a copy of this.

Whenever I hear a train whistle I will think of this article

After watching the show I searched the internet for more about the Holy Souls and stumbled across this article at the Divine Mercy website and I want to share it with you: This is the Sound of a Lost Soul. I will never again hear a train whistle without thinking of this article and of all the despairing souls all over the world, so much in need of our prayers. Lord, have mercy.

Thanks for reading and may your Lenten season be one of deepening holiness, prayer, and interior life. God bless.
