Christian charity compels us to have mercy on the Souls in Purgatory and to assist them as much as we can.The saints:
1. The Mass - The best means for benefiting the Poor/Holy Souls in Purgatory is the Sacrifice of the Mass, for it is the same as the Sacrifice of Our Lord on the Cross, which was of infinite value...
To hear or to have Mass said for the Poor Souls is their greatest consolation.
St. John Chrysostom recommends that every Catholic family have a box at some convenient place in the house into which loose change can be dropped to be used for Masses for the Poor Souls.
2. Holy Communion - Many revelations of the Saints assure us that Communion hastens the time of deliverance of a soul in Purgatory...
3. Stations of the Cross - Making the Way of the Cross is one of the most excellent ways of meditating on the Passion of Christ.
St. Francis de Sales had said that we should practice all the works of mercy together.For more information or to have Masses said for your dearly departed, please contact:
St. Thomas says: “Suffrages for the dead are more agreeable to God than suffrages for the living because the former, not being able to help themselves like the living, stand in more urgent need.
St. Augustine has said: “By saving a soul, you assure your own salvation.”
