Today we join together and pray for all the faithful departed who wait in purgatory for their entrance into heaven. Purgatory is like a tight knot hole which the rope of our life must pass through scraping all the accumulated ungodly stuff off as God draws us to himself. Purgatory is like the mud room where we take off our soiled shoes and garments before we join God in the living room. Purgatory is the place where we take care of the unfinished business of growing in holiness.
We pray for all the souls in purgatory. May they enter into heaven soon! Amen.
