November is the Month dedicated to the Poor Souls in Purgatory.
According to tradition, Saint Gertrude the Great was told by Our Lord that the following prayer, each time she piously recited it, would release 1,000 souls (or a vast number) from their suffering in purgatory:
"Eternal Father, I offer You the most precious bloodof thy Divine Son, Jesus,in union with the Masses saidthroughout the world today,for all the Holy Souls in Purgatory,for sinners everywhere,for sinners in the universal Church,for those in my own home,and in my family. Amen.
Thank you, Thank You, Generous God!
Thank You, thank You, thank You, generous God!You have injected life with joy, thus we know laughter.You have dabbed creation with color, thus we enjoy beauty.You have whistled a divine tune into the rhythm of life, thus we hear music.You have filled our minds with questions, thus we appreciate mystery.You have entered our hearts with compassion, thus we experience faith.
Thank You, God, thank You. Thank You!
