November is dedicated to the Holy souls in Purgatory. On November 2, we celebrate this feast and pray for our loved ones who have gone before us. Our faith teaches us that purgatory is not eternal but its duration is pronounced during the time of judgement.
The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches us that: 1030 All who die in God’s grace and friendship, but still imperfectly purified, are indeed assured of their eternal salvation; but after death they undergo purification, so as to achieve the holiness necessary to enter the joy of heaven.
It is important to pray for souls all year long, but in November our Blessed Mother makes it known how efficacious our prayers can become.
In 1960, Elizabeth Kindleman a victim soul and mystic began receiving locutions from both Jesus and our Blessed Mother and from 1961 to 1982, recorded these messages in her diary. One of the request she asked of Jesus and the Blessed Mother was to help the souls in purgatory.
“In November, when I asked for an outpouring of the Flame of Love for souls in purgatory, the Lord Jesus made me sense that a soul was freed. I felt indescribable relief and also the immeasurable happiness when the soul came into God’s presence. At the same time, my soul experienced the Lord’s anguish.”
Responding to Elizabeth’s request, our Blessed Mother proclaimed:
“I grant your request. If at any moment, someone prays three Hail Mary’s in my honor, while referring to the Flame of Love, they will free a soul from purgatory.
During November, one Hail Mary will free ten souls. The souls in Purgatory should experience the effect of the Flame of Love.”
If we all prayed the Flame of Love Rosary once a day during the month of November, which is equivalent to 53 Hail Mary’s we would help free 530 souls daily. This is a powerful gift that our Lady has given us to use all year, but especially during the month of November. You can also use this Rosary and read Elizabeth’s diary to follow the other daily devotions given to her.
Let us pray together the Hail Mary 3x’s
Hail Mary full of grace, the Lord is with Thee, blessed our Thou among women and blessed is the fruit of Thy womb Jesus. Holy Mary, mother of God, pray for us sinners, spread the effect of grace of Thy flame of love over all humanity now and at the hour of our death.
