Remember the Holy Souls in November

by Staff

November is traditionally the month of prayer for the Holy Souls in Purgatory. In honor of this tradition, we would like to share with you an excerpt from Purgatory: A Guide (Marian Press).

Saint Stanislaus Papczynski (1631-1701), the Founder of the Marian Fathers of the Immaculate Conception, had a deep devotion for the Holy Souls in Purgatory that has since become integrated into the lives of each and every Marian priest and brother.

'The Most Powerful Weapon in Our Spiritual Arsenal'

Father Dan Cambra, MIC, stood before a packed assembly and wasted no time getting down to matters of life and death.

"We're dedicated to praying not only for the souls in Purgatory, but also about preparing people to die well," said Fr. Dan, addressing the nearly 175 attendees of our 8th Annual Mercy for Souls Conference on Sept. 9, at the St. Faustina Center, on the grounds of the National Shrine of The Divine Mercy in Stockbridge, Massachusetts.

Why Did Jesus Descend into Hell?

by Fr. Dan Cambra, MIC

Let it be known: There's no such thing as a stupid question.

Take for instance the one recently posed to me at a parish mission. During a break, a woman approached me and, rather sheepishly, said, "Father, every Sunday at Mass we pray the Creed, and after all these years I have to admit that I have no idea what we mean when we speak of Jesus descending into hell. Why did Jesus descend into hell?"
