Prayer Intentions for This Evening
edit_button

I end this day in the Prayer for the Liturgy of the Hours and pray for the following Intentions:

  • That all people may receive the opportunities they need to reach their full potential
  • For the poor and the poor souls in purgatory
  • For the Intentions of the Catholic forum that I put together

(There is a pious story that soon after the death of a certain Poor Clare nun, she appeared to her Mother Superior - who was praying for her soul - and made the following revelation: " I went straight to heaven because I paid all my debts by virtue of this prayer (below)." Please note that this prayer is not meant to take the place of making a sincere Confession. It is meant only as a prayer to foster true contrition and reparation.)

Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Sacred Heart of Jesus, with al its love, all its sufferings and all its merits.
To expiate all the sins I have committed this day and during all my life.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

To purify the good I have done poorly this day and during all my life.
Glory be, etc.

To supply for the good I ought to have done, and that I have neglected this day and all my life.
Glory be, etc.

There are four Catholics that attend my Lutheran High School. One of them told me that "Purgatory" was banned from the Catholic Church. I have talked to about half a dozen Catholics and read a few Catholic books, and many of these sources say things contrary to each other (Such as whether or not to fast). Is there a good website that gives of a statement of the true doctrine and teachings of the Catholic Church?

Try http://www.catholic.com

There is a section in the upper left hand column with links to information on our faith. There are links on morality, the sacraents, etc.

PS: Purgatory is not "banned". It is a true place. I wrote about it here:

For a listing of all Catholic beliefs (although written slightly complicated) you should buy a copy of the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

You can read it online here: http://www.usccb.org/catechism/text/
