Hi, Mary —
Thank-you for your question.
Since the subject of your question
deals with the Holy Souls, allow
me to advertise my other apostolate:
Helpers of the Holy Souls
I run this apostolate dedicated
to releasing the Holy Souls from
Purgatory with another colleague
of mine, Brian Bagley.
We are trying to start Purgatory
Prayer Programs in every state in
the United States. You can read more
about what we do on our site and
get your FREE Purgatory Prayer Program
starter kit here.
After talking with (Bags) about
your question, the only two sources
he knew of came from unapproved,
It means what they say could or could
not be true; the Church has not spoken
on the validity of these revelations.
I am mentioning them because what
they say, seems possible.
Because neither source has been approved
by the Church I have to withhold
my sources and just tell you what
The testimonial of the first quote
is from a Sister M. de L. C. All
who knew her, were unanimous in declaring
that she practiced all the religious
virtues, even heroically.
All Souls' Day and its octave
bring great joy to Purgatory and
All Souls' Day many souls leave
the place of expiation and go
to Heaven. Also, by a special
grace of God on that day only,
all the suffering souls, without
exception, have a share in the
public prayers of the Church,
even those who are in the great
Still the relief of
each soul is in proportion to
its merits. Some receive more,
some less, but all feel the benefit
of this extraordinary grace. Many
of the suffering souls receive
this one help only in all the
long years they pass here and
this by the justice of God.
is not, however, on All Souls'
Day that the most go to Heaven.
It is on Christmas night.
The testimonial of the second quote
is from Maria Simma, a living
mystic. From this source,
there days on which more souls
are delivered from Purgatory into
Heaven than on others?
it is at Christmas that the most
souls are delivered, but again
this depends on how much was prayed
or done for them. It is Christmas
because Christmas is the greatest
of all days for graces. And then
- Good Friday
- [the feast of the] Ascension and
- All Souls' Day
many are released.
If I find quotes from approved sources
I will add them as well.
Note: Prudence dictates
that if you share these quotes with
other family and friends, you tell
them they came from unapproved sources of the Church.
They should be considered
as nothing more than theological
Hope this helps,
