Welcome to Episode 31 of Among Women “Espresso Shot”
– a short strong coffee break of faith sharing and teaching from Pat Gohn.
Today’s topic: Praying for the Souls in Purgatory
This is the 11th installment in a 12-part series on the monthly church devotions. In November we are called to pray for the holy souls — the faithful departed — as they moved toward purification and the perfection of Heaven. While the Church does has All Souls day as a memorial, traditionally on Nov. 2 every year, the truth is that the entire month is dedicated to praying for souls.
In this podcast I’ll offer a brief teaching on the hopeful truth of purgatory, and the benefits of praying for souls. And of course we’ll pray together at the end — for the many souls that might benefit from our prayers!
