THE GOOD FRIDAY PRAYER FOR THE HOLY SOULS


I adore Thee, O Holy Cross, which has been adorned with the tender, delicate and venerable hands and feet of my Saviour, Jesus Christ, and immured with the Precious Blood.  I adore Thee, my God, nailed to the Cross for me.  I adore Thee again, O Holy Cross, for the love of my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen.
~ Revealed to St. Bridget that if said devoutly 33 times on Good Friday-- 33 souls will be released from Purgatory and 3 souls on ordinary Fridays.

INTERCESSORY ARMY OF GOD

This is a different kind of army.  With our Faith as our shield, and our prayers being our weapons, we become a living prayer.

Reminder of what to do to be a part of this army:

1. Now, and then everyday when you wake up in the morning, say a cleansing prayer (for the cleansing prayer I use, please see below) and then consecrate yourself, your family, and your home to the"Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ, The Immaculate Heart of Mary, and to God, the Eternal Father of Heaven and earth."2. Offer yourself each day as a warrior in the Army Of God and ask the Lord Jesus to lead you with His light as you move in the world.  Then believe that He is guiding you, and that what you are doing is what He wants you to be doing.  Ask for clarity and discernment to know what is not His will, as well.3. Offer your day as a prayer; all the good, the bad, the pain and suffering, the joy and happiness, the success, the failures and everything that comes from this day becomes a solid prayer.4. Then, even when you put your head down at night to sleep, your guardian angel will continue the work.

PRAISES TO THE DIVINE MERCY

THE LOVE OF GOD is the flower — Mercy the fruit. Let the doubting soul read these considerations on Divine Mercy and become trusting:

ALONE WITH GOD...Prayer for a Visit to the Blessed Sacrament

I humbly kneel in silence before You, O my God, present on this altar. I thank You for inviting me into Your house. Lord, it is good to be here.
  
During this visit, O my Saviour, I want to isolate myself with You,  think of no one but You, love no one but You, with my mind and senses silent, contact with the world of business and war and community troubles severed - not solicitous for anything, high or low, near or far.

Alone with You, O my God, let me honor You with all my heart and mind, and with my body too.

EUCHARISTIC HOLY HOUR

Eucharistic Holy Hour

Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration

"IN THE HOLY EUCHARIST -- THIS IS ALSO THE MEANING OF PERPETUAL ADORATION -- WE ENTER THIS MOVEMENT OF LOVE FROM WHICH ALL INTERIOR PROGRESS AND ALL APOSTOLIC EFFICACY SPRINGS."
--Pope John Paul II, June 6, 1980.
Meditation at the Basilica of Montmartre



MOST HOLY SOULS IN PURGATORY ARE RELEASED ON CHRISTMAS DAY DECEMBER 25

This Special Day of Jesus' birth is celebrated by Christians all over the world. But did you know that the dead are the most blessed during this day? For Christmas is known to be one of the biggest days of the year for the release of souls from purgatory to heaven. This season means more than gift giving and family gatherings. 


What would you want for Christmas if you were in Purgatory? HEAVEN! To see the Face of Jesus gazing on you with love for all eternity!


The suffering souls in Purgatory love, praise and Thank God. They are saved! But there greatest suffering is worse than any pain, illness, or loss on earth. They have seen the face of God! Now they know the goodness of God and want to be with him but are unable to. So the holy souls loss of the sight of God is their GREATEST suffering. This is Purgatory.

SOLEMNITY OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST THE KING: NOVEMBER 20, 2011

Each year the church celebrates the Solemnity of Christ the King to acknowledge the Kingship of Jesus Christ. For Jesus Chris is the King of All Creation and the Redeemer of Mankind. He deserves all glory, honor, and praise.


The Feast of Christ the King was established by Pope Pius XI in 1925 as an antidote to secularism, a way of life which leaves God out of man's thinking and living and organizes his life as if God did not exist. The feast is intended to proclaim in a striking and effective manner Christ's royalty over individuals, families, society, governments, and nations.

SOLEMNITY OF ALL SOULS: NOVEMBER 2

All Souls Day is a solemn feast in the Catholic church commemorating all of those who have died and now are in Purgatory, being cleansed of their venial sins and the temporal punishments for the mortal sins that they had confessed and atoning before entering fully into Heaven.

There is a special plenary indulgence that can be gained for the souls in Purgatory on All Souls Day. A plenary indulgence removes all temporal punishment for sin--and so, in effect, releases a soul from Purgatory. To gain this indulgence, one must visit a church, recite one Our Father and the Creed, receive Communion, and pray one additional Our Father and one Hail Mary for the intentions of the Holy Father. The final requirement is to take part in the Sacrament of Confession, which can be done up to seven days before or afterwards. Since most Catholic parishes offer Confession on Saturday, one can go to Confession on a Saturday, and then fulfill the rest of the requirements on All Souls Day itself.

SOLEMNITY OF ALL SAINTS: NOVEMBER 1

Every 1st day of November, the Catholic church honors all saints known and unknown or unsung saints, who may have been forgotten, or never been specifically honored. This is a special day where we ask for their prayers and intercessions. As members of the church, we believe that the saints of God are just as alive as you and I, and are constantly interceding on our behalf. We have a connection with the saints in heaven and this is known as the Communion of Saints. 


"We believe in the communion of all the faithful of Christ, those who are pilgrims on earth, the dead who are being purified, and the blessed in heaven, all together forming one Church; and we believe that in this communion, the merciful love of God and his saints is always [attentive] to our prayers." 
(CCC 962)
