Profound, provocative, complete treatment of Purgatory--its sufferings, consolations, duration, etc., plus, how we can assist the Poor Souls, their gratitude, and God's reward to us for helping them. A very moving book.

a very good explanation of purgatory (Posted on 2/16/2015)
You will learn to love praying for the Holy Souls Review by Steve
One of the best books on Purgatory you will find! It is absolutely thorough in its treatise, and inspiring in helping encourage us to pray for those who have passed on before us. Written in 1895, it contains all that the Church believes about Purgatory without watering anything down. Very inspiring and faith building.Two other excellent and recent works are: "The Biblical Basis For Purgatory" by John Salza and "Get Us Out Of Here!!" by Nicky Eltz (an interview with the late Maria Simma) All three are great......

Where is the rest of the book Review by D. Bawden "Catholic Book Reader"
Charity for the Suffering Souls: An Explanation of the Catholic Doctrine of PurgatoryI bought this several years ago, only to find out that the original book contains 122 more pages than this edition. I agree this is an excellent book and so are the 122 pages in another edition, which I have found here on Amazon. (Posted on 10/8/2013)

Learn how and why you should pray for the dead. Don't wait till you see fires! Review by Sexy Bachelor
Good to see a reprint of this work which teaches and reminds us on why we should remember the dead! The dead are not so dead insofar as they have passed onto another plane of existence. For those that are destined for Heaven and yet die on this plane with the stain of sin on their souls, purgation awaits them in the afterlife. This book explains how and why we should continue praying for our dead even after their physical passing on earth.For skeptics and unbelievers, this book isn't scary enough to scare any reader. Unbelievers in the supernatural need shocking jolts and full-blown apparitions and visions to wake them up. This book isn't for these types of people.For those that ask: "what's in it for me?", this book exhorts with inspiring stories and apparitions of the holy souls who hear our prayers and how they can return our favors and similarly help us in ways that are inexplicable. Includes historical examples of favors returned from beyond the grave!As a way to kickstart your enthusiasm, or lack thereof, the book concludes with a list of daily prayers for the holy souls.Do you continue to doubt that sufferings end at your physical death on earth?So, you want to be scared?Ask and pray to see the fires!By God's grace, you will see them while you're still living on earth now!Start saying your prayers today.Tomorrow may be too late!Réquiem Ã¦térnam dona eis, Dómine,et lux perpétua lúceat eis.Requiéscant in pace. Amen.Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord,and let perpetual light shine upon them.May they rest in peace. Amen. (Posted on 4/30/2009)
