The Benefits we receive when we help the Souls in Purgatory.

The Apostle of the East, St. Francis Xavier appeared many times with immense bliss and glory to a sick priest named Marcellus Mastirilli, S.J. in the city of Naples of Italy. Once he appeared to him with many souls.

The sick priest asked the saint, “Who are these who have come with you?” And the saint answered, “These are your friends.” “Are all these, souls of Purgatory?” asked the priest again, “Yes, These are the souls in Purgatory who are friends to you. As you are sick, these souls are very unhappy. Because when you were healthy, these were benefitted from the Masses you offered for them. Now, they don’t receive such help because you are unable to say Mass due to sickness.”

Then Father Mastirilli asked, “Will these receive any benefit if I make other priests to celebrate Masses for them and ask Christians to pray for them?” “Yes, they will surely receive plenteous benefits” was the Saint’s reply.

After saying this, St. Francis Xavier and the souls disappeared. And Fr. Mastirilli, calling upon the priests of his monastery and requested them to say and offer Masses for the Souls in Purgatory. He also asked the others in the monastery to pray 15 decades of the Holy Rosary for them. And his requests were obeyed.

Dear Christians, during his lifetime on earth, St. Francis Xavier had a special devotion and mercy to the Holy Souls in Purgatory. He frequently tried to induce the same devotion and mercy in the hearts of other Christians also. In every village, town or city he stayed, he would come around in the streets at night ringing a bell, and would request the Christians who would gather around him to pray for the Souls in Purgatory.

Being merciful towards these suffering souls and helping them is a great virtue. If you help them, they will always keep you in mind and pray for you. Since they receive infinite benefits through the Holy Mass, it would be very beneficial to offer Masses for these souls.

If you assist at and offer the Holy Mass with a good devotion and piety, it would be very helpful to them. As Father Mastirilli did, It would be very good if you induce others also to pray for these souls. They will be extremely grateful to you and will pray for you once they entered into heaven.

The souls who were benefitted by the acts of Rev. Fr. Mastirilli were very grateful to him and they prayed to God for him. By their prayers, immense blessings were bestowed upon him. He was miraculously cured by St. Francis Xavier who appeared to him. He went to Japan and died there as a martyr. The souls who are helped by you will in their turn pray for you and you will also receive such invaluable blessings from God!
