One of my readers has come up with a brilliant idea to have as many Masses said worldwide on Christmas Day for the benefit of the Holy Souls. As you may know, there is a long standing tradition within the Catholic Church that more souls are released from Purgatory on Christmas Day than at any other time.
Now, I challenge you, all my readers and other bloggers: Get thee to your priest right away and ask him to schedule a Mass on Christmas Day for the Holy Souls. Pay him the stipend; whatever it is in your Diocese. I did just that after Sunday's Mass. I was blessed to be in Vancouver, where I got to attend the Low Mass. After Mass I approached the visiting FSSP priest and asked him to say a Mass for the Holy Souls on Christmas. He agreed to do so and asked me if I would like the Midnight Mass. He scheduled it into his IPhone right then and there, and told me it may very well be a private Mass; one of his three Masses he can say daily.
Tomorrow, I will post the letter from the reader who got this whole idea rolling.
Please post this challenge on your own blogs, and think about the Holy Souls languishing in Purgatory, and how much benefit we can give to these poor souls by uniting our efforts to release them from their imprisonment to all their glory in heaven.
