Friends of the Rosary:
We observe on this day, November 2, All Souls, Día de Los Fieles Difuntos, the commemoration of all the faithful departed. Yesterday, we rejoiced with the Saints who entered the glory of Heaven. Today, we pray for all those who are in the purifying suffering of Purgatory, awaiting the day when they will join the company of saints.
Since my holy wife died last Thursday, Oct 28, at least five faithful priests said to our family that Maria Blanca is in Heaven interceding for us. Many other lay members shared the same thought. I want to believe that.
When Maria Blanca was at the ICU with her body painfully burned we talked about purgatory and Heaven. She said to me, convinced, that she would go to purgatory. I replied, funny: “If after your particular passion, you go there, you will stay there for only two minutes.” As you might guess, I had no idea.
The divine mercy is incomprehensible. There is one certain thing, though: our prayers accelerate the path of souls to Heaven. In exchange, holy souls pray for our salvation on earth.
Maria Blanca, pray for us, as you did when you were at La Paz hospital. You lived for others. You were the center of our family life. Now we need to live without this center. May God want for us to purify ourselves with our pain.
Jesus, I Trust In You!
All Saints and All Souls, Pray For Us!
