Souls In Purgatory Return Favors
Why do we pray for those who have died? Ever since the beginning of the Church, it was believed that the dead needed prayers for their purification. Any unrepented sin on a soul at the moment of death, prevents a soul from entering into God's Eternal Light. There are no SHADOWS in Heaven. All darkness must be purged before coming into eternity with Our Lord. Souls in the state of being "purified", cannot pray for themselves. That is left up to the Church "militant" or in other words, all of us.
Each year on All Souls Day, we remember all who have died during the past year. The greatest prayer of the Church is Holy Mass. So please have masses said for your family members who have died. Offer your daily purification. When you and I arrive in Purgatory after we die, we will be most happy for all those we have prayed for while we were still alive. Then, they begin to pray for us. Poor souls never forget those who have prayed for them. In return they pray for all of us. Pray, Pray, Pray for poor souls.
May we always remember those who have died in our Masses and Prayers.
Entrusting you to the care of Our Lady,
