Quote/s of the Day – 7 February – The Memorial of Blessed Mary of Providence HHS (1825-1871) and the Holy Souls in Purgatory

“Let us help and commemorate them.
If Job’s sons were purified
by their father’s sacrifice (Job 1:5),
why would we doubt that our offerings
for the dead bring them some consolation?
Let us not hesitate to help those
who have died and to offer our prayers for them.”

St John Chrysostom (347-407)
Father and Doctor of the Church

“One of the holiest works,
one of the best exercises of piety,
which we can practice in this world,
is to offer sacrifices,
and prayer
for the dead.”

St Augustine (354-430)
Father and Doctor of Grace

“If it were but known how great
is the power of the good Souls in Purgatory
with the Heart of God
and if we knew all the graces
we can obtain through their intercession,
they would not be so much forgotten.
We must, therefore, pray much for them,
that they may pray much for us.”

St John Vianney (1786-1859)

Blessed Mary of Providence HHS (1825-1871),
friend of St John Vianney,
was the Founder of Society of the Helpers of the Holy Souls
their objective is assisting theHoly Ssouls in Purgatory
through their service to the needy of the world.
She said:

“If one of our friends was imprisoned
in a house on fire,
how we should rush to her help.
Then think how we should try
to deliver the Souls in Purgatory.”
