What Does God Want More That Anything In The World?

That Not A Single Soul Be Lost.



Apostolate To Save Living Sinners And Releasing Millions Of Souls From Purgatory


Every day thousands of souls die and are judged. Few go to Heaven, the majority go to Purgatory and many go to Hell 1. It is important to pray for the souls in Purgatory – but they are already saved. Many of these souls who will die tomorrow and are destined for Hell could be saved by us. Because God has given us a free will, he cannot change our direction but Jesus has said that by praying for living sinners, they could be enlightened to repent before death and be saved.

There are many types of prayers we could say that would save souls; additional rosaries, chaplet of mercy, or even the short prayer. The most significant is the prayer given to Maria Simma.

Many people have read about Hell and how severe it is in suffering and your total loss for all eternity and many to this day still don’t believe in Hell 2.

Two great Saints in the church (among others) were shown Hell and gave us a good picture of what it is like. Both St. Fuastina and St. Teresa of Avila had very similar descriptions, but St. Teresa’s description was very special as she credits God’s great mercy, in showing her the place where “the Devil kept in readiness for her that she deserved by her sins”.

Whether it is a relative or friend or just a stranger, you would not want anyone to experience this suffering and being lost forever.

We may also save many lost sinners by being a “Victim Soul”. You do this by offering up all your personal daily physical and mental suffering to God in remembrance of the sufferings of Jesus and for the salvation of souls. Adding sacrifices to your prayers give them more power!

2-Results of a recent national poll of 36,000 people taken by Pew Forum for Religion and Public Life, published June 23, 2008 indicated that of all those who follow a particular religion combined with those with no affiliation – over 40% do not believe in Hell.




DESCRIPTION OF HELL


Revelations of St. Teresa of Avila, Mystic, and Doctor of the Church

(Taken from the Life of St. Teresa – Chapter XXXII, page 298)

“While I was at prayer one day, I found myself in a moment, without knowing how, plunged apparently into Hell. I understood that is was Our Lord’s will that I should see the place where the devils kept in readiness for me, and which I had deserved by my sins. It lasted but for a moment, but it seems to me impossible that I should ever forget it even if I were to live many years.

“But as to what I then felt, I do not know where to begin if I were to describe it; it is utterly inexplicable. I felt a fire in my soul but such that I am unable to describe it. My bodily sufferings were unendurable. I have undergone most painful sufferings in this life and as the physicians say, the greatest that can be borne, such as the contraction of my sinews when I was paralyzed. Without speaking of other ills of different types-yet, even those of which I have spoken, inflicted on me by Satan; yet all these were as nothing in comparison with what I then felt, especially when I saw there would be no intermission nor any end to them.

“These sufferings were nothing in comparison with the anguish of my soul, and a sense of oppression, of stifling, and of pain so acute, accompanied by so hopeless and cruel an affliction, that I know not how to speak of it. If I say the soul is continually being torn from the body it would be nothing- for that implies the destruction of life at the hands of another-but here it is the soul itself is tearing itself to pieces. I cannot describe that inward fire or that despair, surpassing all torments and all pain.  I did not see who it was that tormented me, but I felt myself on fire, and torn to pieces, as it seemed to me; I repeat it, this inward fire and despair are the greatest torments of all.

“Left in that pestilential place, without the power to hope for comfort, I could neither sit nor lie down; there was no room. I was placed as it were in a hole in the wall; and those walls, terrible to look on themselves, hemmed me on every side. I could not breathe. There was no light, but all was thick darkness. I do not understand how it is; though there was no light, but all was thick darkness, yet everything that can give pain being seen as visible.

“It seems to me that we complain without reason. I repeat it: this vision was one of the grandest mercies of God. It has been to me of the greatest service, because it has destroyed my fear of trouble and contradictions of the world, and it has made me strong enough to bear up against them, and to give thank to Our Lord who has been my Deliverer, as it now seems to me, from such fearful and everlasting pains.

 
WHEN WE READ THIS ACCOUNT OF THE SUFFERINGS IN HELL IT SHOULD MAKE US WANT TO PRAY FOR SINNERS SO THEY WILL NOT GO THERE.


Remember that saying:


“There but for the Grace of God go I.”
(It could be one of us suffering for all eternity)



Also remember the words of scripture:


“There is more joy in Heaven over on repentant sinner than 99 righteous ones.”


“From those who have been given much, much will be expected of them.”

(Because we are blessed we need to do more for Our Lord, especially saving sinners)



History gives us two good examples of great sinners who were converted on their deathbed: (1) Dismas, the good thief who repented and asked Christ to remember him and was promised paradise, (2) Dutch Schultz the infamous gangster of the 1930’s who (although of the Jewish faith) on his deathbed asked for a Catholic priest, was baptized in the Faith and in sorrow confessed his sins. Surely someone prayed for these two (maybe a family member). It proves that prayers for lost sinners do work and also that God has GREAT MERCY.

"Many souls could be saved from hell if this Indulgence prayer was prayed in the morning and evening with three "Hail Mary's" for those who died on that day"


O most merciful Jesus,
Burning with love for souls,
I pray to you and plead to you, In union
With the agony of your Sacred Heart
And the pains of your Immaculate Mother,
To wash with your blood all the sinners
On earth who are in agony and who have
To Die this day. Dying Heart of Jesus,
Have mercy on those who are dying!

Fraternity of Releasing One Million Souls

Many people have personally released souls from purgatory through Rosaries & other prayers. Here is an opportunity to know you've actually released that many.


Our Lord told St. Gertrude the Great that this prayer would release 1,000 souls from purgatory each time it is said.


"Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Most Precious Blood of They Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the Masses said throughout the world today, for all the holy Souls in Purgatory. Amen."

On a Rosary of 50 Beads each 50 prayers saves 50,000 Souls
20 Rosaries x 50 = 1,000,000 Souls



How wonderful to know that the 1,000,000 you released will be praying for you to enter Heaven. St. Margaret Mary who lived over 200 years ago spent her life praying for souls. One day 2 of the souls appeared to her on their way to Heaven. When St. Margaret asked them to remember her, they said "Ingratitude has never entered Heaven".

The Importance Of Prayer To Reach Heaven
 

A HIDDEN TREASURE

Appearing to one of the sisters of her community shortly after her death, St. Teresa of Avila told the Sister that she would be willing to return to a life of suffering on earth until the end of time if thereby she could merit that degree of glory with which God rewards one devoutly recited“Hail Mary”

    If you and I, at this very moment, were standing on the threshold of eternity, we would see a limitless duration extending before us which our vision would fail to terminate. Looking on this endlessness the awful truth would come to us that the time of merit had passed forever. The saints realized this truth while yet in life, and we can see the vastness of their reward.

    Those who have passed into eternity realize that there will be no further opportunities for additional merit, for time has passed forever. If regrets were possible in Heaven, unused opportunities would be the cause, for the blessed know what greater capacity for giving accidental honor to God they would Have had if they had used all their opportunities. Because of Gods mercy they have no regrets, but their status is sealed forever.


Quotes from Scripture

“Do not build up treasures on earth where rust and moth corrode, but build up treasures in Heaven (prayer and good works) for where your treasure is there is where your heart will be”

“Pray unceasingly”- St Paul

We should pray for the desires of our family, relatives and friends who need our prayers.
Also we should pray for the souls purgatory who have no one to pray for them, but lets not forget those who may die today and be destined for hell because they are not willing to ask God for forgiveness or express any sorrow for their sins. Because God has given us a free will he cannot change our direction but Jesus has said that by praying for living sinners, they could be enlightened to repent and be saved.


How much does God love us?


One of the greatest books ever written (2nd only to the holy bible) gives us a true insight into how much God loves every living Soul. The “Mystical City of God” gives us the answer to many Spiritual mysteries beginning with the fall of Lucifer and the bad Angels to Christ's suffering and death on the cross. It was dictated by Mary, the Mother of Jesus, to a 17th century Spanish  nun, Venerable Mary of Agreda. It spans 4 volumes a total of 2,676 pages.

The book revealed that during the last 3 hours of Jesus on the cross He spoke these words to his Father: “If it were possible, I would gladly go through all this suffering again if it would save one soul”



Prayer for the Poor Souls and the Dying Ones

O most merciful Jesus,
Burning with love for souls,
I pray to you and plead to you, in union
With the agony of your sacred heart
And the pains of your Immaculate Mother,
To wash with your blood all the sinners
On earth who are in agony and who have
To die this day. Dying heart of Jesus,
Have mercy on those who are dying!!


Many souls could be saved from hell if this indulgence prayer was prayed in the morning and evening with three "Hail Mary's" for those who died that day.
