The Manual of the Purgatorian Society Containing Spiritual Reading and Prayers for Every Day of the Month Also the Ordinary Prayers of the Pious Catholic. Why should we pray for the Holy Souls in Purgatory? "Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy." (Matth. v 7) Theologians assert that those who bestow mercy upon the suffering souls, shall themselves find great relief and assistance in Purgatory; they consider active charity towards the holy souls a mark of predestination to eternal happiness. This little handbook - only 3.75" x 5.75" and less than 3/4 inch thick - contains every prayer, meditation, novena, and Mass for the Holy souls that you could imagine. It is a treasure for those who love the Holy Souls.
