Dear Readers,

I would like to introduce you to a new Internet resource that is truly a blessing from God and for all your loved ones who are in danger of dying without faith or repentance or the sacraments whether their deaths may come within hours or decades from now.

I encourage you to read the comments of the remarkable person and priest who founded this soul-saving ministry at https://savesoulsblog.wordpress.com.

Do pray for the souls of your deceased loved ones, but don’t neglect the souls of your living loved ones.

Excerpts of Father Joseph’s comments:

“My name is Father Joseph and I am a Catholic priest.  I have been living in monasteries for about 34 years and have been a priest for almost 25.  I’ve been around long enough to know that there is nothing more important than the salvation of souls, our own and our fellow human beings.  There really is no time for anything else, because Heaven and Hell are forever…”

“Are there any incorrigible teenagers, irascible old folks, lapsed Catholics, ardent unbelievers, or heedless profligates among your family or friends? Or do you know someone who is dying without faith or repentance or the sacraments? Well, just email their names to me. I will keep a list of these “hard cases” and will pray for them (including them also in the divine mercy chaplets I pray several times daily especially for this intention), and I will also offer the Holy Mass twice a month for their salvation.

You see, this way, even if there’s no evidence that their lives are changing for the better, you will know that graces are being “stored up” for them — Jesus did in fact tell us to “lay up treasures in heaven” (Mt. 6:20) — which the Lord may apply to them at the moment of their deaths. This is what I will ask Him to do, anyway (and I think He will, in his infinite mercy). There are so many parents who fret over their wayward children or their unbelieving relatives or friends, and such concern is legitimate. Well, now there’s something practical you can do about it.”
