On our Instagram stories today we shared about some of the many saints who were given visions of Purgatory during their time on earth. Saint Faustina speaks of her visions of Purgatory in her diary, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I saw my Guardian Angel, who ordered me to follow him. In a moment I was in a misty place full of fire in which there was a great crowd of suffering souls. They were praying fervently, but to no avail, for themselves; only we can come to their aid. The flames which were burning them did not touch me at all. My Guardian Angel did not leave me for an instant. I asked these souls what their greatest suffering was. They answered me in one voice that their greatest torment was longing for God. I saw Our Lady visiting the souls in Purgatory. The souls call her ‘The Star of the Sea.’ She brings them refreshment. I wanted to talk with them some more, but my Guardian Angel beckoned me to leave. We went out of that prison of suffering. [I heard an interior voice] which said, ‘My mercy does not want this, but justice demands it.’ Since that time, I am in closer communion with the suffering souls.” (Diary, 20) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Today I’ll be praying the #DivineMercyChaplet LIVE from a cemetery nearby (via the #ChurchPOP Facebook page). Join me in praying for the holy souls in Purgatory. 🙏🏻

During the month of November we are reminded of our duty to pray for the deceased. Here is a powerful prayer for the Holy Souls in Purgatory: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Most Precious Blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the masses said throughout the world today, for all the holy souls in purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal church, those in my own home and within my family. Amen. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Don’t forget to join #ChurchPOP via Instagram stories as we share more on #Purgatory and why we must pray for all souls!

Please pray for Chile!

On Friday, Nov. 8, approximately 75,000 rioters gathered in Santiago, Chile’s streets, and La Asuncion Catholic Church became a target.

Crowd - Looters - Fire - Objects - Catholic

The hooded crowd of looters set fire to multiple sacred objects, including Catholic statues, church pews, and sacred paintings from La Asuncion Church in Santiago Chile. They also desecrated the church’s inside.

Protests began three weeks ago regarding the increased subway fares, with “students jumping the turnstiles,” but “quickly turned into clashes, looting and arson.”

Protesters - Demands - Health - Care - Improvements

The protesters’ demands later increased to include better health care, improvements in education, as well as criticisms of the pension system.

“We still haven’t achieved anything, so we’re going to keep protesting,” said 17-year-old student Ginette Pérez, who was also part of the Friday riot.

Degree…in - Years - Student - Nicole - Muñoz

“I’ll still be paying my degree…in 20 or 30 years,” said 28-year-old veterinary student Nicole Muñoz.

Here’s some photos of the damage:
