November: Month for the Holy Souls in Purgatory

As November is upon we are reminded to think and pray for the Holy Souls in Purgatory, who are traditionally remembered during this month. Those countless souls await our prayers and good works and any little pain and suffering that we can offer for them throughout the day. Let us make a valiant effort this month to offer up many acts of love for these dear souls who will not forget our goodness to them. Here is a prayer below that you may wish to pray during this month or even make a part of your regular devotions.

Our Lord revealed to St. Gertrude that 1000 souls would be released from Purgatory each time it is said devoutly:


Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Most Precious Blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the Masses said throughout the world today, for all the Holy Souls in Purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal Church, those in my own home and within my family. Amen.

Know that we are remembering all the deceased in our prayers in a special way during this month. If there are special people that you would like us to remember during this month, please send us their names and we can pray for them.
