“If we desire to make certain of heaven, dear friends, let us pray fervently for the souls in Purgatory. It may even be asserted that praying devoutly for the souls in Purgatory is an almost sure sign of salvation. If we have been faithful in praying for these poor souls then they will in turn help us. Throwing themselves at God’s feet they will plead: “Lord, have mercy for this poor soul, grace and mercy for her! Be merciful, Oh God, to this charitable soul who rescued us from the flames and satisfied Divine Justice” - St John Vianney
"It is therefore a holy and wholesome thing to pray for the dead that they may be loosed from their sins..." 2Maccabees 12:46
