AFTER A WEEK or hearing ghostly noises, a man is visited in his home by the spirit of his mother, dead for three decades. She reproaches him for his dissolute life and begs him to have Masses said in her name. Then she lays her hand on his sleeve, leaving an indelible burn mark, and departs.
HUNGRY SOULS recounts these stories and many others, trustworthy, Church-verified accounts of earthly visitations from the dead in Purgatory.
HUNGRY SOULS also discerns from these accounts important truths about the afterlife, about God's mercy, and ultimately, about the urgent necessity to pray and perform suffrages for our brothers and sisters in purgatory, and to reform our lives so as to shorten our own stay in that place of real and awful suffering. Paperback, 157 pages.
