Thirtieth Day


The unspeakable joy of the souls in Heaven does not cause them to forget. On the contrary, their supreme happiness makes them more alive to the memories of those they have left on earth.

The soul that has entered into bliss does not, even for a second, forget the generous friends who have succored him in his exile, and have aided him to attain to the possession of God and celestial glory.

Now a Saint in Heaven, he uses to the full his power of intercession. He prays God to be merciful and generous to those who were merciful and generous to him. By name he mentions to Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and to Mary, the Immaculate Queen of the Universe, those who mentioned his name when he was helpless to help himself. He lays the supplications of his friends before the Throne of the Most High God.

He becomes, in effect, a mighty benefactor, persuasively beseeching God to extend mercy, and to grant special graces and favors to those who remembered him in Purgatory.

The blessed soul prays with the fervor of new-found joy that their passage through life will be safe, their stay in Purgatory brief, and their entrance into Heaven swift and triumphant. He prays that those whom he has left on earth, may one day also behold the Beatific Vision, and see God face to face throughout the endlessness of Eternity. Let us fervently join with them in that prayer, that we may be happily reunited with them, in the unending bliss of our heavenly fatherland.

Our Father, Three Hail Marys, Gloria, De Profundis.

Most gentle Heart of Jesus, ever present in the Blessed Sacrament, ever consumed with burning love for the poor, captive souls in Purgatory, have mercy on the souls of the faithful departed. Be not severe in Thy judgments, but let some drops of Thy Most Precious Blood fall upon the devouring flames, and do Thou, O merciful Savior, send Thy Angels to conduct them into a place of refreshment, light and peace. Amen.

Crucified Lord Jesus, have mercy on us! And help the suffering souls in Purgatory.
