Prayers and Practices for the Souls in Purgatory

Availability: In stock

Discover the Catholic doctrine of Purgatory, its roots in Scripture and Tradition, and what this means for our lives and devotion.
This basic introduction to Purgatory  is written Father Dan Cambra, MIC, spiritual director of the Holy Souls Sodality.



Drawing from his own past contributions to the Holy Souls Sodality newsletter and the writings of his brother Marians, including Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC; Fr. Michael Gaitley, MIC; Fr. Chris Alar, MIC; and more, Fr. Cambra has gathered together a collection of pieces on various elements of Catholic doctrine on Purgatory, demonstrating that it really does exist and we really are obligated to pray for the dead. Sharing a wealth of devotional practices, all with remarkable power to aid the Holy Souls in Purgatory, Fr. Dan has gathered an essential treasure trove of teaching and practice on one of the most neglected (and yet most essential) of the works of mercy.

Powerful reading for the season of Lent.
Not long after this book was published, Fr. Dan Cambra conducted an Advent mission at our Church - Divine Mercy Parish in Three Rivers, MA. I purchased and began to read the book, but became sidetracked. After experiencing loss of both family and friends over the past year, I was once again drawn to the book. I couldn't put it down! I feel as if I had to go through that period of loss to more fully appreciate what I was about to read. As for the structure of the book, I particularly liked the succinct chapters - there was so much to digest and contemplate. Fr. Cambra did a superb job in providing an historical context for the topic and then delineating the tools of mercy (for me the most important part). It didn't stop there either. I rarely read the appendix of a book, but I did this time. Providing personal testimonies from his fellow priests, regarding their ties to the devotion of praying for those in Purgatory was genius - a case of leading by example. Needless to say, I highly recommend this book. Review by Diane / (Posted on 3/23/2019)
