Holy Sacrifice of Mass for Holy Souls in Purgatory – Sep 25 – Homily – Fr Matthias
In the homily for this Requiem Mass (Sep 25, 2019), Fr. Matthias explains the Franciscan custom of praying for the dead, as we do in this monthly Mass offered for deceased Friars, Sisters, Third Order members and associated lay faithful, relatives, and benefactors.
The fruits of the Redemption, obtained by Our Lord at Calvary and applied to each generation through the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, have to be applied to each and every faithful soul. We can assist the deceased in the expiation of their sins by praying for them. That is why we offer Masses for the holy souls in Purgatory.
