Reread in 2018: This is the most comprehensive book I have found on Purgatory and my favorite as well because it is arranged in daily format. I use it to record the deaths of those I love and/or loved ones love, to remember to pray for them on the anniversaries of their death. For many people, these anniversaries are very important and it is helpful to take note of this. This book consists of reflections for each day of the year, saints quotes/scripture texts, and prayers. I keep it close.

This book is for daily reading, including February 29. You can read it through, but it's less numbing if one reads just one page a day. At the end is a story about a church who has a collection of relics of signs from people from Purgatory, plus a number of prayers that are useful and related to the book's topic.

Each day's page has a Bible quote, a text relating to something about Purgatory, a reflection peace and the "Eternal Rest..." prayer. There might be a feeling of some repetition, but

It only takes a few minutes to reflect on the Holy Souls and to pray for them, so start reading this book if it is on your "to read" list. Remember, in response to our prayers, the Holy Souls can also pray for you. Who doesn't need some holy friends praying for them?

A real eye opener for those who want to
Make a difference for suffering souls.
The reflections are amazing.

Love this book! I read the whole book, even for the days left in this month, so I would not forget to post finished book. I will be re-reading the dates of Dec. 17-31, 2017. When 2018 arrives I plan on starting the book again for the new year.

Prayer for the holy souls!
Eternal rest grant them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon the.
May they rest in peace. Amen.

A very well written and thoughtful devotional. I felt at times that the different authorities Tassone quotes would contradict each other on small matters, but if that doesn't sum up the catholic Catholic Church I don't know what does. If you feel called towards a devotion to the holy souls this is a great place to start.

This was an excellent daily devotional to read. I learned a great deal about what the Catholic Church and early fathers taught on the doctrine of purgatory. At the same time it saddened me that the church today does not speak about this doctrine very often, which has led most Catholics unaware of all the holy souls presently in this state of purification that can be aided by our assistance. I also shudder to think of all those from other religions, who have lost this early church teaching, who ...more

I refer to this book everyday on my lunch break. It's a quick daily reading and helps me with my devotion to praying for the souls in purgatory. This is my second year of doing this.

“Escorts to Heavens I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord!” — Psalm 122:1 St. John Macias worked for the sick in Peru and, no matter how tired he was, prayed three Rosaries on his knees every night for the poor souls in purgatory. On his deathbed, St. John the Evangelist appeared to him and said that through his prayers St. John Macias had released one million four hundred thousand souls from purgatory. When he died, thousands upon thousands of souls poured from heaven to greet him.” 0 likes
“The Need for Purgatory God will bring every deed into judgment, with every secret thing, whether good or evil. — Ecclesiastes 12:14 “I would go so far as to say that if there was no purgatory, then we would have to invent it, for who would dare say of himself that he was able to stand directly before God? “And yet we don’t want to be, to use an image from Scripture, ‘a pot that turned out wrong,’ that has to be thrown away; we want to be put right. Purgatory basically means that God can put the pieces back together again. That he can cleanse us in such a way that we are able to be with him and can stand there in the fullness of life” — Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger (Pope Benedict XVI). Reflection: Ask the Lord to cleanse your soul so that you can put back together the broken pieces of your life. Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace. Amen.” 0 likes
