‘The souls of the righteous are in the hand of God, and no torment will ever touch them. In the eyes of the foolish they seemed to have died, and their departure was thought to be an affliction, and their going from us to be their destruction; but they are at peace’.

This reading from the book of Wisdom, set for today at Mass, belongs perfectly in this season of the Holy Souls. Let us pray for them, that their time in Purgatory may be lessened through our prayers.

May God bless you this day, and may you know His peace.
