Susan Tassone on Purgatory
edit_button

We as Catholics know there is a temporary state between Heaven and Hell called purgatory. This place is where all people who die in God's friendship - without mortal sin on their souls - but have less serious sins can be purified. St. Paul alluded to purgatory.

1 Cor 3:15 "The one whose work is burnt down will suffer the loss of it, though he himself will be saved; he will be saved as someone might except to be saved through fire."

We however can help the souls in purgatory called "The Holy Souls" to reach Heaven through our prayers, indulgences, and having Masses said in their name.

One activist for the Holy Souls was Susan Tassone. An interview was conducted with her about her work to help the souls of those in purgatory. I highly recommend this interview. And for those wanting to know more information on purgatory, please see my post "Purgatory."

Prayer for the Souls in Purgatory

O gentle Heart of Jesus, ever present in the Blessed Sacrament,
ever consumed with burning love for the poor captive souls in Purgatory,
Have Mercy on them.

Be not severe in Your judgments, but let some drops
of Your Precious Blood fall upon the devouring flames.

And, Merciful Savior, send Your angels to conduct
them to a place of refreshment, light and peace. Amen.

Just watched Susan Tassone on EWTN's "Women of Grace" this past week and I plan to buy several of her books about the Souls in Purgatory. Susan was inspiring and gave practical ways that we can become involved with these Holy Souls. And, I agree - it's a Win-Win situation; we pray for the Holy Souls and they will pray for us to persevere in our lives. Thank you, Susan for the wealth of goodness you give us. I can't wait to read your books. I have a new awareness and zeal to pray for those in Purgatory. Alleluia!
