Dancing because of love stronger than death. It’s an Ezekiel thing to do.

Did you pray for the Holy Souls today. If you pray for them, they will, as Jesus says, be the ones to welcome you into the eternal habitations. Meanwhile, I don’t want to be in purgatory until the end of time. Pray for all the Holy Souls. It’s a great act of charity that helps you get on your own way to heaven.

Jesus did NOT come to save us from death and all that is consequent to original sin outside of the guilt. And He forgives the guilt also of our own sin by flooding us with sanctifying grace, which makes no room for the guilt. God is love, and He makes us His tabernacles. The joy of the Holy Spirit is not untoward.

1 The hand of the LORD came upon me, and he led me out in the spirit of the LORD and set me in the center of the plain, which was now filled with bones. 2 He made me walk among them in every direction so that I saw how many they were on the surface of the plain. How dry they were! 3 He asked me: Son of man, can these bones come to life? “Lord GOD,” I answered, “you alone know that.” 4 Then he said to me: Prophesy over these bones, and say to them: Dry bones, hear the word of the LORD! 5 Thus says the Lord GOD to these bones: See! I will bring spirit into you, that you may come to life. 6 I will put sinews upon you, make flesh grow over you, cover you with skin, and put spirit in you so that you may come to life and know that I am the LORD. 7 I prophesied as I had been told, and even as I was prophesying I heard a noise; it was a rattling as the bones came together, bone joining bone. 8 I saw the sinews and the flesh come upon them, and the skin cover them, but there was no spirit in them. 9 Then he said to me: Prophesy to the spirit, prophesy, son of man, and say to the spirit: Thus says the Lord GOD: From the four winds come, O spirit, and breathe into these slain that they may come to life. 10 I prophesied as he told me, and the spirit came into them; they came alive and stood upright, a vast army. 11 Then he said to me: Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel. They have been saying, “Our bones are dried up, our hope is lost, and we are cut off.” 12 Therefore, prophesy and say to them: Thus says the Lord GOD: O my people, I will open your graves and have you rise from them, and bring you back to the land of Israel. 13 Then you shall know that I am the LORD, when I open your graves and have you rise from them, O my people! 14 I will put my spirit in you that you may live, and I will settle you upon your land; thus you shall know that I am the LORD. I have promised, and I will do it, says the LORD. (Ezekiel 37:1-14 nab)

For the Holy Souls in Purgatory: Hail Mary…

    Yes – after attending the evening Mass for All Souls Day in the Extraordinary Form in a nearby town, several of us crossed the road to the churchyard of the 12th/13th century Anglican church which happens to be directly opposite the Catholic church.
    We were of three different nationalities so it was suggested we pray in Latin – a language not heard there since the Reformation. A beautiful experience for all of us.
