Saint Robert Bellarmine - "The Poor Souls Answer Our Prayers"

St. Robert Bellarmine: "The Souls in Purgatory can pray for those, who address to them their petitions, and obtain from God help, forgiveness, assistance against temptations, and, all favors, both temporal and spiritual, which they may need."

Saint Bellarmine is in good company teaching us to ask for the intercession from the Poor Souls in Purgatory.

"It is true," says St. Alphonsus, "they are unable to pray or merit anything for themselves, yet, when they pray for others, they are heard by God."
