This blog was started on July 21st, 2015, after my Mary, Our Mother blog had mysteriously disappeared. I will post only Marian items, especially regarding Medjugorje and other Marian apparitions. Thank you for reading this blog. May it give great glory to God through the Immaculate Heart of Mary!

Divine Mercy Novena Day 8
Dear Family of Mary!
"Today bring to Me the Souls who are detained in Purgatory"
What a joy it
is to pray for the souls in Purgatory. Our prayers can help them to
quickly be released from their suffering and enter into Heavenly joy!
What a work of mercy it is to pray for them. Our Lady taught us the
importance of such prayer:
November 6, 1986 "Dear
children! Today I wish to call you to pray daily for souls in
purgatory. For every soul prayer and grace is necessary to reach God and
the love of God. By doing this, dear children, you obtain new
intercessors who will help you in life to realize that all the earthly
things are not important for you, that only Heaven is that for which it
is necessary to strive. Therefore, dear children, pray without ceasing
that you may be able to help yourselves and the others to whom your
prayers will bring joy. Thank you for having responded to my call."
"Offer for them the
alms of the spirit and pay off their debt to My Justice." This is a very
important work of mercy, one that anyone can do!
Divine Mercy Novena, Day 8
to Me THE SOULS WHO ARE DETAINED IN PURGATORY, and immerse them in the
abyss of My mercy. Let the torrents of My Blood cool down their
scorching flames. All these souls are greatly loved by Me. They are
making retribution to My justice. It is in your power to bring them
relief. Draw all the indulgences from the treasury of My Church and
offer them on their behalf. Oh, if you only knew the torments they
suffer, you would continually offer for them the alms of the spirit and
pay off their debt to My justice.
Most Merciful Jesus, You Yourself have said that You desire mercy; so I
bring into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls in
Purgatory, souls who are very dear to You, and yet, who must make
retribution to Your justice. May the streams of Blood and Water which
gushed forth from Your Heart put out the flames of Purgatory, that
there, too, the power of Your mercy may be celebrated.
Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls suffering in
Purgatory, who are enfolded in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. I
beg You, by the sorrowful Passion of Jesus Your Son, and by all the
bitterness with which His most sacred Soul was flooded: Manifest Your
mercy to the souls who are under Your just scrutiny. Look upon them in
no other way but only through the Wounds of Jesus, Your dearly beloved
Son; for we firmly believe that there is no limit to Your goodness and
In the book Susan
included a set of meditations called "Purgatory in the eyes of St.
Faustina: Twelve Daily Meditations" St. Faustina shares her experiences
with the Holy Souls and how she prayed for them. It is an eye opener to
the reality of Purgatory and how much we can help our brothers and
sisters detained there.
