November 17, 2021 Reflection – The Souls in Purgatory

The Souls in Purgatory
November 17, 2021
St. Elizabeth of Hungary

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.”

Yesterday we had a visit from the Souls in Purgatory during the Daily Rosary, reminding us to pray for them! Every day we pray for a saint to pick us as we pray the Rosary together on Mary TV. We have a box with slips of paper folded up in it, each with a Saint and an intention on it. And yesterday, we received the Souls in Purgatory! Here is what was written on the slip of paper:

Holy Souls in Purgatory
(celebrated November 2nd)
“For if he had not expected the fallen to rise again it would gave been superfluous and foolish to pray for the dead, whereas if he had in view the splendid recompense reserved for those who make a pious end, the thought was holy and devout. This was why he had this atonement sacrifice offered for the dead, so that they might be released from their sin.” (2 Maccabees 12:44-45

Intention: Pray for the Souls in Purgatory

It was a welcome reminder for Denis and me! In this month of November we should be praying for the Souls in Purgatory every day. But during the Rosary we also received several confirmations from some of you as we prayed

Teresa wrote: The Holy Souls in Purgatory! They kept me up last night! I was startle awake at 3 am and they came to mind, so I just started praying the Rosary.

And Karen wrote: Hi Cathy and Denis! I too was awake in the night and felt the urge to pray for the Holy Souls in Purgatory…so I prayed the Chaplet of Divine Mercy followed by the Rosary. My meditation for today was also to pray for the Holy Souls! Then the Souls chose us on Mary TV!! So there is NO DOUBT that our Mother wants us to pray for them. God bless you!!

And Patty wrote: I am praying with You now! At the beginning of the Rosary, I just mentioned to God that it would be nice to know how Rosemarie is doing. (She is my friend, an avowed atheist, who died yesterday. We were praying!!!) Is she in purgatory? Did she accept your offer of love and mercy? I thought, maybe St. Anthony will be the saint today…but then the Souls in Purgatory came to us!! Oh thank you, Jesus!

Finally, our shipmate, Elaine, wrote today about her devotion to the Holy Souls: Hi Cathy and Denis, I started to pray daily for the Poor souls when my 90 year old aunt asked who would take over from her to pray for the souls…It had been her calling since the age of 13. Thus since then I have tried each day to pray for the souls and now have my daily prayer for them. I use Susan Tassone’s daily reflection and suggestions on how to pray. She asks us to pray the “De Profundis” and “Te Deum”. Normally I say a decade of the St. Gertrude prayer but during this month dedicated to the Holy Souls I say a chaplet of St. Gertrude the Great. When I say the Rosary, I pray for the Holy Souls as well. I also pray for them at Holy Mass!

Well, this is very exciting! We had four confirmations about praying for the Souls!! Let’s not let this inspiration pass us by. We can try to begin small, possibly remembering the Holy Souls with each Rosary we pray, with a simple prayer like this prayer from St. Gertrude:

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.

Thank you, dear Souls, for making yourselves known to us so that we can pray for you from now on!!

In Jesus, Mary, and Joseph!

“Medjugorje is the spiritual center of the world!”

Pope St. John Paul II – February 24, 1990

“Dear children, my real, living presence among you should make you happy because this is the great love of my Son. He is sending me among you so that, with a motherly love, I may grant you safety!”

Our Lady of Medjugorje – July 2, 2016

“Rejoice, little children, because God is merciful and loves you all with His immeasurable love and leads you to the way of salvation through my coming here!”

Our Lady of Medjugorje – June 25, 2018

Our Lady Speaks

Vicka's Note MaryTV

Vicka, one of the visionaries in Medjugorje, wrote the note (above) after Our Lady spoke with her during an apparition in Medjugorje in April, 1999, about Mary TV’s  plan to build a television facility in Medjugorje.

Vicka wrote to Denis: “Our Lady says that the plan is good – but you need to wait a little.  Now you can get prepared little by little, until Our Lady tells when the right moment is.  You don’t need to hurry, make haste, but to be patient.”

When Our Lady said this to Vicka, the technical genius in Medjugorje that she had her eyes upon, who would begin Mary TV’s live streaming from Medjugorje, was seven years old.

Totus Tuus (Totally Yours)

Immaculate Conception, Mary my Mother, Live in me, Act in me, Speak in me and through me, Think your thoughts in my mind, Love through my heart, Give me your dispositions and feelings, Teach, lead me and guide me to Jesus, Correct, enlighten and expand my thoughts and behavior, Possess my soul, Take over my entire personality and life, replace it with Yourself, Incline me to constant adoration, Pray in me and through me, Let me live in you and keep me in this union always.

Our Lady gave this prayer 25 years before She started appearing in Medjugorje. This prayer is being answered through Our Lady’s presence in Medjugorje and through Her messages. Mother Immaculata writes: “This is Mary’s hour and She is about to crush Satan’s head. Her very being is like incandescent heat in the center of the Trinity and the manifestation of Her power is growing daily. The Immaculate Conception prayer (which is what Our Lady called the prayer she gave me for union with Her) has been used by exorcists who have told me that the devil reacts violently to it and is subdued by it. We are praying daily for the success of Mary TV!“

Our Lady Gives A Sign…


MARY TV was LIVE STREAMING Ivan’s May 24, 2013 apparition on Mt. Podbrdo (Apparition Hill) in Medjugorje. My wife, Cathy, was praying in front of her computer in the US, connected through the Internet, welcoming Our Lady along with everyone gathered on the mountain. She couldn’t see anything on her computer screen because it was late at night and Ivan had said, “No lights.” She found herself asking Our Lady for a sign – a little light – as a sign that MARY TV was on the right track and really serving her. Just after the apparition, when she went to give an account on Mary TV’s Facebook page, the page opened with this picture that she had never seen before, captioned: “MARY APPEARS OVER BUILDING IN MEDJUGORJE, PHOTO TAKEN BY PILGRIM.” Our Lady is standing directly over MARY TV’s studios, her feet right where we have two POV cameras STREAMING 24/7 LIVE TO THE WORLD Apparition Hill & Cross Mountain!


Our Lady spoke to Vicka during an apparition in Medjugorje in April, 1999, about the importance of Mary TV’s mission. At that time she told Vicka that she herself (Our Lady) would begin Mary TV! She did! But she didn’t do it alone. The generosity of her children made Mary TV a reality for her. Your generosity is needed now for it to continue!
