Greedy for graces

And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit whom he has given us. - Romans 5:5

Quote excerpted from OSV Newsweekly article (9/25/13) by Emily Stimpson:
“We need to be greedy for graces for the souls in purgatory. When the soul leaves the body, the time for merit is up. The soul is helpless. That’s why they need our prayers — the Rosary, adoration, the Way of the Cross and, most of all, the Mass. The Masses we have offered for the souls in purgatory are the best thing we can do for our beloved dead. That’s because the Mass is the highest form of worship, the highest form of prayer.”

St. Pio of Pietrelcina
