Help, Help, They suffer so much!
Here is an icon of my Holy patroness, Our Lady of Mt. Carmel. She is very well known for the Marian title as “Refuge of all sinners”, especially for the poor souls in Purgatory as well as living souls too. In purgatory, it is very possible that some of our own nearest and closest ones are still suffering the excruciating pains and calling on us piteously for help and relief. There is no hunger, no thirst, no poverty, no need, no pain, no suffering to compare with what in purgatory endure.
Here is How We can help the Holy Souls:
1. HAVE MASSES OFFERED FOR THEM
2. MAKE THE STATIONS OF THE CROSS
3. RECITE THE ROSARY
4. OFFER UP ALL YOUR PAINS AND SUFFERING FOR THE RELIEF OF THE HOLY SOULS
5. PRACTICE BEING RELIGIOUS
I know it’s not easy to make all the steps above, but it is in our own little ways that despite from being so busy living in this world, we can also deepen our faith towards God and help those who are in need, especially the poor souls of our beloved ones living and those who have passed away.
