The official newspaper of the Archdiocese of New Orleans is the Clarion Herald. In the ETERNAL LIFE section published October 28, 2008, in preparation for All Souls Day November 2008, Editor Mr. Peter Finney and his staff wrote an article about our ministry.
As the article states, we were working to distribute 50,000 Poor Souls Prayer cards by the summer of 2009. We took until All Souls Day 2009, but we did it. Did you hear the cheers from the Poor Souls that day? As long as you did it to one of these My least brethren, you did it to Me.
The best and most efficacious way of glorifying Him in Heaven and honoring Him on earth is to spread devotion to the souls in Purgatory, and to make known the great mission He fulfills towards these suffering souls. It gives great joy to God when anyone is the cause of freeing a soul from Purgatory.
First, pray the prayers found on the Poor Souls Prayer card, which you can download here, with pleasing Jesus first, as He is the one who loves the Poor Souls the most and uses your prayers to lessen the Poor Souls suffering.
