(c)Mateo Ivankovic 2016 J.M.J. November 2, 2016 All Soul’s Day Dear Family of Mary! November 6, 1986 “Dear children! Today I wish to call you to pray daily for souls in purgatory. For every soul prayer and grace is necessary to reach God and the love of God. By doing this, dear children, you obtain new intercessors who will help you in life to realize that all the earthly things are not important for you, that only Heaven is that for which it is necessary to strive. Therefore, dear children, pray without ceasing that you may be able to help yourselves and the others to whom your prayers will bring joy. Thank you for having responded to my call.” Today we pray for the souls of our beloved dead. Our Lady tells us “For every soul prayer and grace is necessary to reach God and the love of God.” We can never take for granted that one of our loved ones is in heaven. They need our intercession. And we will be happy if we pray for them, because once they achieve heavenly bliss, they will intercede for us! Here is a beautiful prayer for the Holy Souls found in Susan Tassone’s book “Praying in the Presence of Our Lord for the Holy Souls“. I highly recommend this book and all of the books by Susan Tassone. You can find them at www.osv.com . An Invocation to the Most Holy Trinity for the Souls in Purgatory O God, all goodness, Father of mercies, Who at the prayers and fastings of your faithful people, did vouchsafe to send your angels to break the chains of your holy apostle Peter, and to open the doors of his prison; here even also on this day the prayers and supplications of your church, and send you angel to the souls for whom we pray, that, the doors of their prison being opened wide, they may be happily received into the bosom of your mercy. Our Father… Hail Mary… Glory be… O Son of God, Savior of souls, Who refreshed the three children in the fiery furnace, pour down upon the souls that cry to you from the flames, your heavenly dew. Your precious blood alone can quench the flames of purgatory; oh, let it now flow down upon these suffering souls and do Thou, O Lord, have mercy upon them. Our Father… Hail Mary… Glory be… O Spirit of love, have compassion on the cruel torment which these souls endure, that are filled with the purest charity, and, aspiring without ceasing towards their God, cry aloud in their distress, “I thirst, I thirst after my God!” — and yet cannot attain unto the object of their love, nor receive the least drop of that torrent of pure delights. O Holy Spirit, grant that, having felt the fiercest pangs of love, they may taste its heavenly delights in a blessed eternity. Amen. (Susan Tassone. Praying in the Presence of Our Lord for the Holy Souls. p. 106) Our Father… Hail Mary… Glory be… In Jesus, Mary and Joseph! Cathy Nolan Mary TV PS. Mirjana’s apparition will be posted on our webpage as soon as possible today (Nov. 2) Let’s thank Our Lady for coming with words of hope and healing for us, and ask her to pray with us for the Holy Souls in Purgatory.
