When we pray at Mass we are united with Christ in Glory and with the gathering of His saints and the souls of Purgatory
Everyone on earth can choose to call out for God's help, hoping to be heard. Yet those who have been baptised into Christ, made adopted children of God, living in His light, can speak with God as with a friend, and have a sure hope of Heaven, if faithful to the end. Christ's Spirit, living in souls, gives knowledge of God, intimacy, and hope, and is a lamp for the Way.
As the priest looks at his congregation, preparing to preach and teach at Mass, he should remember how needy they are. Their souls are as much in need of healing and nourishment as sick bodies are.
By our little acts of faith and trust, we unblock the mouth of a furnace of divine praise within our souls.
Christ sends His angels to rescue souls from darkness and to bring them nearer to His light.
The grace of God, like a healing balm, purifies the souls of Purgatory, in response to the prayers of Our Lady
Christ's light and radiance are poured unto our hearts, and so upon the departed souls whom Christ 'Encounters' there.
Purified souls now walk on a flower-carpet, in joy and simplicity, freed from all cynicism and hard-heartedness.

God draws into His bliss after death those who can bear the brightness of glory, while those who are still consumed by shame wait below.
The souls of Purgatory are drawn into God's bliss as soon as they can bear the brightness of His glory
Within our souls, the divine life is like a torrent of deep water, full of life, light and power, channelled through our will, our consent.
However brightly-polished may be the 'window' of our souls, if we keep the shutter half-shut we shut out God, our light.
What steel doors some souls have, not admitting the Spirit, trapped by their own will in their own coffin-kingdoms.
God the Father is calling everyone to turn to Him; yet the gloomy interiors of sinful souls resemble a dark room in a catacomb: people who refuse to repent, who refuse to confess their sins, and who do no penance. Their souls are dead, even in this life; and if they die in their sins they will never see God. We should try to share the truth about spiritual danger, and the life of grace held out to us.
How much the departed souls are in need of our prayers. Some are closer to the light; others are suspended over the depths.
Into the light of Heaven enter Holy Souls who have been purified. They enter without pain; there is no sin in them any longer.
