REAL Personal Experiences
Regarding the Poor Souls In Purgatory

Poor, Suffering Souls in Purgatory
Released by Catholic Traditional Requiem Masses

The greatest relief for the Poor, Suffering Souls in Purgatory is to have the Holy Sacrifice of the Catholic Traditional Requiem Mass offered for the happy repose of their Souls.  This is taught De Fide by the Council of Trent:

“Whereas the Catholic Church, instructed by the Holy Ghost, has, from the Sacred writings and the ancient Tradition of the Fathers, taught, in Sacred Councils, and very recently in this Ścumenical Synod, that there is a Purgatory, and that the Souls there detained are helped by the suffrages of the Faithful, but principally by the acceptable Sacrifice of the Altar [i.e. by the Catholic Traditional Mass].” (Roman Catholic Council of Trent, Session Twenty-Five, December, 4, 1563, held under the Sovereign Pontiff, Pope Pius IV, Giovanni Angelo De Medici [Friday, December 25, 1559 - Thursday, December 9, 1565], Decree Concerning Purgatory; emphasis added.)

Dear Readers,

A number of books have been written about the personal experiences which some people have had regarding the Poor, Suffering Souls in Purgatory.

We have also had Our own personal experiences, and these are of two kinds.

The first kind of personal experiences have to do with Masses which We have Offered for specific Souls in Purgatory at the request of one or more people for the only purpose of helping those Souls in Purgatory to be more quickly released from Purgatory and go to Heaven.  Because of the purpose of these Masses, it is self-evident that, with a rare exception, the Souls released from Purgatory do not give Us their Testimonial about how Our Masses got their release from Purgatory.

The second kind of personal experiences have to do with Masses Offered for all of the Poor, Suffering Souls in Purgatory for their intercession concerning a specific temporal intention requested by people in need of the help of the Poor Souls.

Over many years, in addition to the first, and primary type of Mass Intention (i.e. for a specific Soul in Purgatory), We have also Offered Requiem Masses for all of the Souls in Purgatory for specific temporal intentions.  In this case, those Catholics who have gotten their temporal intentions granted by the Poor Souls frequently thanked all of the Souls in Purgatory for their intercessory help.  However, until a few months ago, We had never thought about providing an actual web page on which such people could provide their own personal Testimonial for the powerful intercession of the Souls in Purgatory in granting their intention(s).

Therefore, since the idea of a Testimonials web page for the Poor Souls is obviously something We have never had before, it will obviously take a little time for Catholics, who have had their Mass Intentions to the Poor Souls granted, to become aware of this opportunity in order to further increase devotion to the Poor Souls in Purgatory, and, in the process, to release as many Souls from Purgatory as possible according to God's Holy Will.

Therefore, what follows relates a few personal experiences, expecially four of Our own personal experiences, but also a few of Our personal Testimonials to the Poor, Suffering Souls in Purgatory for granting some of Our personal Mass Intentions.

An Experience
Related by Father Rossignoli

“The following is taken from a pious author quoted by Father Rossignoli (MERV., 17).  Two Religious, of eminent virtue, vied with each other in leading a holy life.  One of them fell sick and learned in a vision that he should soon die, that he should be saved, and that he should remain in Purgatory only until the first Mass should be celebrated for the repose of his Soul.  Full of joy at these tidings, he hastened to impart them to his friend, and entreated him not to delay the celebration of the Mass which was to open Heaven to him.”

“He died the following morning, and his holy companion lost no time in celebrating the Holy Sacrifice.  After Mass, while he was making his Thanksgiving, and still continuing to pray for his departed friend, the latter appeared to him radiant with glory, but in a tone sweetly plaintive he asked why that one Mass, of which he stood in need, had been so long delayed.”

My blessed brother, replied the Religious, I delayed so long, you say?  I do not understand you.

What!  Did you not leave me to suffer for more than a year before offering Mass for the repose of my soul?”

Indeed, my dear brother, I commenced Mass immediately after your death; not a quarter of an hour had elapsed.

“Then, regarding him with emotion, the blessed soul cried out:

How terrible are those expiatory pains, since thy have caused me to mistake minutes for a year.  Serve God, my dear brother, with an exact fidelity, in order that you may avoid those chastisements.  Farewell!  I fly to Heaven, where you will soon join me.
(Fr. F. X. Schouppe, S.J., Purgatory Explained by the Lives and Legends of the Saints, published by Burns & Oates, Ltd., London and Benziger Brothers, New York, Imprimatur by Herbert Cardinal Vaughan, October 11, 1893, pp. 64-65).

# 1  -  A Personal Experience

At the request of a pious Lady, We visited her elderly Father who was in a hospital.  We spoke with him for a few minutes and God gave Him the Grace of repentance for he desired to receive the Last Rites which We Administered to him.  (He was one of several people We have encountered who had been away from the Catholic Church for over 50 years and to whom We Administered the Last Rites.)

A short time later, We had to take care of some very important business which was over 1,000 miles away. A few days later, We received a telephone call from the same pious Lady who told Us that her Father had died within that hour and while she and her Daughter were saying the Rosary for him, he appeared to her in the flames of Purgatory.  He asked her to ask Us to Offer a Catholic Traditional Requiem Mass for him because this one Requiem Mass was all he needed to be released from Purgatory and go to Heaven. Apparently, during the few weeks after We had Administered the Last Rites to him, he had fallen back into a few bad habits and thus went to Purgatory when he died.

Her Father was very insistent that it had to be Us to Offer this Requiem Mass for him, perhaps because We use a 1941 edition of the Requiem Missal used for Requiem Masses. We immediately Offered that Requiem Mass at the private Altar where We were on business, at the conclusion of that telephone call, having first quickly prepared for the Requiem Mass.  As a result, she never saw her Father, or heard from him again.  Thanks be to God!

# 2  -  A Personal Experience

One Sunday afternoon, We received a telephone call at Our Chancery Office from a person who was a personal friend of the Holy Prelate who had validly and lawfully Administered the Sacrament of the Holy Priesthood to Us.  This same Prelate was also involved in Our valid and lawful reception of the Holy Sacrament of the Episcopacy which, of course, included the Traditional Episcopal Consecrator and the two Traditional Episcopal Co-Consecrators, etc., etc., etc.

An 1891 edition of the Pontificale Romanum was used which contains all of the Liturgical Rites for the Administration of the Sacrament of Holy Orders, including the Priesthood and the Episcopacy.

The telephone call had sad news.  This Holy Prelate, who lived over 2,000 miles away, had just died about 30 minutes before then. Upon hearing this sad news, We immediately began preparations to Offer a Catholic Traditional Requiem Mass for him.  Even before We finished unvesting, after having Offered this Requiem Mass for him, a real continuous miracle began to happen which did not last 10 minutes, or one hour, or even twelve hours.  This real miracle lasted for well over one full day of 24 hours! Perhaps one day We will be able to reveal this wonderful miracle.

# 3  -  A Personal Experience

Tuesday, of the same week which is mentioned in # 2, in other words, two days after We had Offered a Catholic Traditional Requiem Mass for him, We were typing a Thomistic theological treatise on the essence of the Holy Sacrifice of the Catholic Traditional Mass when this Holy Catholic Prelate came from Heaven to visit Us and to thank Us, personally, for the Catholic Traditional Requiem Mass We had Offered for him.  But he did much more than thank Us!  He also told Us certain “secrets”, etc. After all of this, he returned to Heaven as quickly as he had come!

Bottom line: We deeply appreciate his great help, insights, and the “secrets” he gave Us, even though We do not consider anything We had done, or intended to do, to merit such great Blessings, feeling totally unworthy of them.  We make some of them available from time to time, as directed.

# 4  -  A Personal Experience

This final example is the case of a different pious Lady.  Her oldest Brother was very ill and about to die.  Because he lived in a different state, this pious Lady, whom some might be wont to consider a Mystic, if they knew her, adequately provided the necessary means for Us to be able to Administer the Last Rites to her dying Brother.

About 2 weeks after We had Administered the Last Rites to him, this Lady received the sad news that her Brother had just died. She then informed Us and requested that We Offer the Catholic Traditional Requiem Mass for him as soon as possible. This We did. But, unfortunately, she was unable to attend the first Requiem Mass during which her deceased Brother spoke to Us and gave Us a personal message for his Sister who had requested this Requiem Mass for him.

Fortunately, the second Catholic Traditional Requiem Mass, which We began shortly after We had finished the first Mass, was attended by this Lady. The reason for the delay before We began the second Requiem Mass was not only to give her the time needed to attend this second Mass, but also to give her the message from her Brother.

After We finished this second Catholic Traditional Requiem Mass for her Brother, this pious Lady told Us what she had heard and seen. She saw her Brother, who had died less than two hours before then, wearing a white linen suit, with a white shirt, and a white linen tie, very happy because, at that very time, he was going up to Heaven as the result of the two Catholic Traditional Requiem Masses We had just Offered for him. She told Us everything he had told her, all of which was for her and her family.  But he had also included a message for Us. These messages were a great comfort for her and her family.


We hope that the first example has helped you to better understand that the sufferings in Purgatory are many times more intense than the worst sufferings in this life. The Souls in Purgatory really do need YOUR charitable help, since they can not help each other or themselves, although they can help those of us in this life.  Usually, the Catholic Traditional Requiem Mass is the most powerful and the quickest way to obtain either an alleviation in the sufferings of a Soul in Purgatory, or to totally expiate for their sufferings so that they may be taken to Heaven.

In your Charity, please remember the Poor, Suffering Souls in Purgatory.  There are many, many Souls who must remain in Purgatory much longer because, before they died, they did very little, if anything, to help the Poor, Suffering Souls in Purgatory. Now they are being treated the same way they treated others - they are ignored!  A word to the wise is sufficient!

# 5  -  A Few Personal Testimonials

Many decades ago, We made a Novena of Masses for all of the Poor Souls in Purgatory for a certain intention which the Poor Souls granted before the conclusion of this Novena!

We began Our devotion to the Poor, Suffering Souls in Purgatory when We were in about the 5th or 6th Grade, especially on All Souls Day when We made many trips into the Church in order to gain as many Plenary Indulgences as possible for the Poor Souls.

When We were in the Seminary, We consulted the Raccolta (a book of prayers, etc., to which indulgences are attached), to find everything to which a Plenary Indulgence was attached, and then did what was possible to gain these Plenary Indulgences for the Poor Souls.

When We Offer Catholic Traditional Requiem Masses, whether for Our own personal Intentions, or those of others, We have found that the Poor Souls usually grant such Intentions (i.e., those which are in conformity with God's Holy Will) rather quickly, both for others and for Ourself.

For those of you who would like to request one or more Catholic Traditional Requiem Masses for all of the Souls in Purgatory for one or more of your specific intentions (i.e., those which are in conformity with God's Holy Will):

Dear Visitors:

Please help Us to continue to provide the Truth,  which   all Catholics need to know,   in these days of deliberate confusion,   lies, brainwashing,  and   propaganda!

Some of Our web pages are the only places on the Internet where you will find some very important facts,  because some of these facts are from Our own many personal experiences,     as well as the result of Our meetings with many Catholic Traditional Clergy including various Patriarchs, Cardinals, Primates, Metropolitans, Archbishops, Bishops, and Religious and Secular Priests, over many, many, many decades,    plus    Our own eye-witness testimony,   concerning   some of the many, many, many changes, which began many, many, many decadesbefore the many, many, many younger generations of Catholics were even born,   and    of which changes all of these so many, many younger generations of Catholicshave no personal knowledge and/or personal experiences.

Most of these many changes    are not only   illegal,  but they are also   invalid,  and   most of them include the censure of  automatic excommunication of the perpetrators,  because, in reality, such changes by the cabal of   automatically excommunicated Innovators,   as well as   the secret gangs   of anti-Catholic Infiltrators,    are changes which are  anti-Catholic!
