Mary TV Daily Reflection 11/16/2015


November 16, 2015
St. Margaret of Scotland
St. Gertrude
Dear Family of Mary!
"...I desire that your faith be firm, flowing forth from love. Because, those of my children who understand the love of my Son and follow it, live in love and hope. They have come to know the love of God. Therefore, my children, pray, pray so as to be able to love all the more and to do works of love..." (November 2, 2015)
It is still November, the month in which we remember our dear ones who have passed away. We pray for the souls in Purgatory, as a work of love. Here is a message Our Lady gave in the early years about the Holy Souls:
Monday, January 10, 1983
Questioned on the subject of Purgatory, the Blessed Virgin says:
"There are different levels of which the lowest are close to Hell and the highest gradually draw near to Heaven. It is not on all souls day, but at Christmas, that the greatest numbers of souls leave Purgatory. There are in Purgatory, souls who pray ardently to God, but for whom no relative or friend prays for them on earth. God makes them benefit from the prayers of other people. It happens that God permits them to manifest themselves in different ways, close to their relatives on earth, in order to remind men of the existence of Purgatory, and to solicit their prayers close to God who is just, but good. The majority go to Purgatory. Many go to Hell. A small number go directly to Heaven."

It is so important to pray for the souls who are suffering in Purgatory. They are part of the Church in much need of our help.
This Prayer of St. Gertrude is a famous prayer for souls in Purgatory. St. Gertrude the Great was a Benedictine nun and mystic who lived in the 13th century. On her feast day let's pray this prayer for the Holy Souls, asking St. Gertude to join us. Our Lady will join us too!
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.
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
