Thérèse of Lisieux: Don’t want to go to Purgatory

Great video Father Mark. Yes. I’ve been repeating Saint Thérèse’s admonition for decades: Don’t want to go to purgatory. It pains Jesus to hear such lack of trust from His Little Flock. Jesus wants us to go straight to heaven. I’ll wax poetic on the whys and wherefores of all of this in the spiritual life during this month of November.

I’ve offered nine Masses in the last few days, the usual weekend Masses and then All Saints and then All Souls, in both counties spread throughout the mountains of Western North Carolina. Too exhausted to blog much. But I did make it up to our Town Cemetery to pray for the dead. I always stop by the graves of a neighbor’s parents and then these two brothers. The older brother was already long killed in battle before his brother signed up. The older brother was the same age in his death as I was when I signed up for the Vietnam draft:

  • Requiem aeternam dona eis Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis.
    • Te decet hymnus Deus in Sion, et tibi reddetur votum in Jerusalem. Exaudi orationem meam, ad te omnis caro veniet.
    • Requiem aeternam dona eis Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis.
  • Rest eternal grant unto them, O Lord, and let light perpetual shine upon them.
    • Thou art worthy to praised, O God, in Zion, and to thee shall prayer be offered in Jerusalem. Hear my prayer, for to thee shall all flesh come.
    • Rest eternal grant unto them, O Lord, and let light perpetual shine upon them.
