On praying for the Souls in Purgatory

                                                        "Soul in Purgatory," Mexico

The Church devotes November to prayer and sacrifice on behalf of the holy souls in Purgatory.

Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich ( 1774 AD - 1824 AD), was a stigmatic and visionary who, for the last 12 years of her life subsisted upon the Eucharist alone.  Of prayer for the souls in Purgatory Blessed Anne says the following:

"[I]t is more holy to pray for the Poor Souls in Purgatory than for sinners who are still alive."

Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich, teach us to pray  and sacrifice for the Holy Souls
