All Souls Day 2013
This beautiful Mass for the Holy Souls in Purgatory has its own sequence entitled “Dies Irae” which means the Day of Wrath. It is a warning to the living of the judgments of God but ends with hope of happiness in heaven. Today is proof that the debt for our forgiven sins can be removed and that Divine Love has in fact created Purgatory for that purpose. Obstacles still persist in the soul after death and impede our entrance into glory. These can and will be removed by a purification that severs souls from anything that still holds them from ascending. What do non-Catholics do in the face of death? Our consoling doctrine can teach them about God’s merciful love.
