CLEVELAND, Ohio, Oct. 27, 2020 /Christian Newswire/ -- A unique series of video prayers has been produced to help the faithful in praying for the holy souls in purgatory for the month of November.
The video series consists of 30 video prayers, one for each day of the month. The series was made in preparation for November, the month traditionally dedicated to pray for the souls in purgatory. The series, on YouTube, premieres Nov. 1 and is the brainchild of Fr. Daniel Bowen, of the Order of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Mercy.
"Many Catholics have forgotten about the souls in purgatory. But they still need our prayers," Fr. Daniel said. "Videos have become so widespread today that we have to use this new medium to help others pray."
"This series breaks new ground - it seems to be the first series of 30 days of video prayers for the holy souls in purgatory," Fr. Daniel said.
Fr. Daniel, who narrates the 30 days of prayers, took each day's reflection and prayers from an old prayer book issued by his order, "Daily Thoughts and Prayers for Our Beloved Dead."
The video meditations begin with this:
"When we love, we remember; and this memory, the effect of love, is not a barren thought. It resolves itself into DEEDS for the loved one.... Most pitiful Jesus, let thy Precious Blood flow down into Purgatory and refresh and revive the captive souls suffering there."
