Prayer Warriors of the Holy Souls

This post will be short. Come all Soul's Day, many will troop back to the cemeteries to remember their dear departed. I really hope that we will all pray for our dead loved ones from our hearts and not merely make this occasion as some sort of mini-family reunions and Halloween trick or treat affair, or we might find ourselves one day in the awful fires of Purgatory for our neglect. That one is definitely not a treat.

Praying for the dead is a spiritual act of mercy and there is a local apostolate in the Philippines dedicated for creating and spreading awareness of the plight of the Poor Souls in Purgatory. They are called Prayer Warriors of the Holy Souls. I urge you to visit their beautiful website at and be a prayer warrior.

"Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen."

"It is a holy and wholesome thought to pray for the dead that they may be loosed from their sins" (2 Mac 12:46)
