Christ taught us that love is more than mutual enjoyment of each other’s company—it is sacrificing for the good of another. Furthermore, from His Church we have learned that the departed souls not only hear us but also depend on us and rely on us to do something they can no longer do: liberate themselves from the sufferings of Purgatory.
This November, let us increase our efforts to assist the Holy Souls in Purgatory. The priests of the Fraternity of St. Peter will offer a Novena of Masses for the deceased from November 2 through November 10, 2023. Additionally, our priests and seminarians will pray for the poor souls, including your loved ones, each day throughout November.
