A burning hand from Purgatory

                                             "Fr. Demetrius Gallitzin," Loretto, Pennsylvania

The Church traditionally devotes November to prayer and sacrifice on behalf of the holy souls in Purgatory.  If you consider this merely a sentimental custom, or if you doubt that the holy souls suffer greatly, or that they derive great benefits from our prayers, then this thoroughly documented account from the early days of the United States will surprise you. (h/t Good Jesuit, Bad Jesuit)

Servant of God Fr. Demetrius Gallitzin, pray for us.
