It's November. You Are Called to a Work of Mercy.

There are souls in need, and you can help.

November is the month of remembrance for Holy Souls in Purgatory. The basis for this special month of remembrance is that many souls, on departing from the body, are not perfectly cleansed from venial sins, or have not fully atoned for past wrongdoing. To quote the Catholic Encyclopedia, they "are debarred from the Beatific Vision," that is, from Heaven, until their souls become purified in Purgatory.

Faustina the Poet

This is part three of the series 'God's Love is the Flower - Mercy the Fruit.' View part two.

In her Diary, on Feb. 12, 1937, St. Faustina wrote a beautiful poem entitled "God's Love is the flower - Mercy the fruit." Saint Faustina wrote, "Let the doubting soul read these considerations on Divine Mercy and become trusting" (949). Let's consider this poem line by line that we might become more trusting of Jesus, the Divine Mercy.
