Blessed Redeemer, as a gift of Your mercy You have granted Purgatory to all the redeemed souls who need purification from the effects of sin. By expiating their sins in the fire of Your love, they are able to enter into the fullness of Heaven. I pray for those I have known and others in my family tree who are in Purgatory. I also lift up my love and prayers to those in Purgatory who have no one on earth praying for them. Free everyone from all remnants of worldliness. Lord Jesus, receive the sufferings of my life as a penance for the healing of their spirits. Raise them up to experience the fullness of Your glory. Amen.
Quote for Today
Venerable Fulton Sheen (1895-1979)
When we die to something, something comes alive within us. If we die to self, charity comes alive; if we die to pride, service comes alive; if we die to lust, reverence for personality comes alive; if we die to anger, love comes alive.”
The prayer above is from Terry Modica’s book Daily Prayers with the Saints.
