"The Holy Souls Will Repay us a Thousand Times Over"
Now who can be in more urgent need of our charity than the souls in Purgatory? What hunger, thirst, or dire sufferings on Earth can compare to their dreadful torments? Neither the poor, nor the sick, nor the suffering,
we see around us, have any such urgent need of our succor. Yet we find many good-hearted people who interest themselves in every type of suffering, but, alas! Scarcely one who works for the Holy Souls.
Who can have more claim on us? Among them too, there may be our mothers and fathers, our friends and our near of kin.
When they are finally released from their pains and enjoy the beatitude of Heaven, far from forgetting their friends on earth, their
gratitude knows no bounds. Prostrate before the Throne of God they never cease to pray for those who helped them. By their prayers they shield their friends from dangers and protect them from the evils that threaten them.
