None Is Justified In God’s Sight

All Souls Day Evening 2017

“It is a holy and wholesome thought to pray for the dead.”  This citation from the Old Testament shows how much the Jews cared for their deceased family and friends.  The need for prayer after death is due to the effects that sin leaves its in us and all must be purged before we can enter heaven.  Even the saints, as holy as they were, admitted their daily failings that needed to be purified.  We merit and satisfy now for our sins but the souls in Purgatory can only undergo suffering to make satisfaction but without merit.  God loves the Holy Souls and is more close to them than to those still on the earth.
