The Loving Mother of the Holy Souls: Monday, November 23, 2015

J.M.J. De mortuis nihil nisi bonum, as the old saying goes. "Regarding the deceased, nothing is said except the good."

It is stated that years ago, Blessed Paul VI (1963-1978) was in the presence of someone who offered an uncharitable remark about a recently murdered man reputed to have been involved with organized crime, to the effect that he had now received his just desserts. The long-suffering Pontiff abruptly cut off further discussion, insisting that--without delay--a prayer would then be recited for the immortal soul of that unfortunate person.

The Mother of the Poor Souls in Purgatory prays for them. She comforts them as only she can. 

We ask her today, and every day, to take countless of those Souls to Heaven.
