Interesting article, although I know nothing about the 'seer' that is attested as the person who sees the Purgatorial souls. The seven things 'revealed' by the purgatorial souls seem plausible, even acceptable in part, but certainly not beyond curiously on target.

I have to agree on the part about dogs, but maybe horses could be included? Smile  They are such astoundingly noble and beautiful animals as well.

This story comes from “Mystics of the Church”



According to Maria the holy souls have revealed to her the following:

  1. -That priests and nuns should always wear their habits/clerics, in as much as possible.
  2.  -That Extraordinary Eucharistic Ministers should be used very rarely, that is, only when it is absolutely necessary; that priests and deacons should make every effort to distribute Communion to the faithful, even though it takes longer to do so.
  3.  – That receiving Holy Communion in the hand should be avoided as much as possible.
  4. -That holding hands during the Lords prayer and that the sign of peace after the Eucharistic prayer should be avoided in as much as it is possible, since both of these are a distraction from Jesus who is present upon the altar and that we should be concentrating upon Jesus alone during this important time of the Mass.
  1. -That dogs are the most hated animals by the devil and the demons because they are the closest and most helpful animal to mankind.
  2. -That outside of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Saint Joseph is one of the greatest Saints who advocates for the souls in Purgatory.  The Angels, especially St Michael the archangel, and also the poor souls own guardian angel are also very powerful in helping to obtain mercy and pleading their cause before God. Also very important is any Saint that the person might have had a devotion to during one’s lifetime.  Maria also pointed out that the Patron Saint of the poor souls in purgatory is St Nicholas of Tolentino
  3. -The holy souls have also revealed to Maria that it is on Christmas day that the most souls are released from purgatory and then also Good Friday, Ascension day, All Souls day and the feast of the Assumption.
Some important things that the holy souls have taught her over the years:

The holy souls have repeatedly told her that the greatest help for them that they can obtain from those here on earth is the offering of holy Mass. Next to the Mass, the holy Rosary and the Stations of the Cross are very beneficial to them.  Any sacrifice we make–even the smallest ones– offered specifically for them have a great value in the eyes of God, and greatly lessen their sufferings and time in purgatory.  The poor souls have told her that even the smallest prayer or sacrifice is like giving a cool glass of water to a parched sojourner travelling in the driest desert.

They normally appear to her in their normal clothes, that is, the ones that they most often wore during their lifetime, and they often have the appearance of one earnestly begging and desiring help.  Sometimes they appear somewhat distraught but this presumably is to elicit compassion on the part of Maria.  They normally appear to her looking as they did in the prime of their life, however children and teenagers always appear as they did right before their deaths.  And while there are indeed some children in purgatory, their Purgatory is normally not very long or painful, since during their lifetimes they often could not have committed any grave sin since they did not attain much understanding or discernment, and are therefore not accountable to the extent that an adult is.

The holy souls have also told her that there are many, many degrees in purgatory, and that the lower parts of purgatory are the most difficult and the most purifying, and this is where those with grave (severe) sins go–that is,  grave sins that have not been forgiven in the sacrament of Confession. As each soul makes reparation for his/her sins that they have committed against God and there fellow man, they are slowly purified and therefore they slowly make progress to the higher levels of purgatory. The souls that appear to Maria are almost always souls that are residing in the higher levels of purgatory.  Essentially, the more repentant and sorrowful one is for the sins committed against God and neighbor during ones lifetime, the quicker one progresses from the lower to the higher degrees of purgatory.


The greatest complaint from the souls in Purgatory- Abandonment by their loved ones


According to Maria, the greatest “complaint” of the souls in Purgatory is how they are almost completely forgotton by their family and loved ones–that rightly complain that they receive no spiritual help from those they themselves helped so much during life! How few prayers are ever offered up for them–even at their funerals! Yet prayer is precisely what they need the most! All the beautiful memorials, celebrations, tattoo’s etc done and given in their honor, while they may be good intentioned, in reality do nothing for them and in no way help to relieve them of their suffering/purification.
It was very interesting up until it mentioned lower parts of purgatory holding souls with grave sins not forgiven in confession....that makes the whole thing very dubious, for the Church teaches no soul can enter Heaven without being in the state of grace. Purgatory is only a place of purification by punishment to remove all imperfections of the soul, not a means of achieving the state of grace. Therefore, souls that die without the state of grace but with perfect contrition, necessarily must be brought into the state of grace before going to purgatory.  So the idea of souls existing in purgatory without being in the state of grace is heretical, and not Church teaching.

I would like to know more about why dogs are hated by the devil more than other animals. Is it because they have some sort of influence?

I assume it to mean those souls who repented at the last moment with a perfect act of contrition rather than the normal means of absolution.  Unless through God's mercy He even allows some souls who make an imperfect act of contrition to be saved... this is obviously something that would be pure speculation as Tradition doesn't teach such a thing.

My guess is that dogs are hated because they not only help man so much, but also because God makes them exhibit many of the best and even Christ-like qualities. Dogs are selfless animals that do all that they can to serve. They're a good example. It's a funny thing that Muslims hate dogs too.
souls in purgatory without being forgiven, doesn't sound right

It's not. It's heresy, pure and simple, much like a lot of things coming from Rome these days.

At least the part about dogs. Smile

Dogs have been known to assist the Saints and protect them.

Grigio, a large grey dog would show up out of nowhere and protect St. John Bosco when walking the streets at night and once laid himself across the front door to stop him from going outside because there was a plan to kill the saint.

And St. Roch was kept alive while languishing in the woods with the plague by a dog who brought him bread from his master's table and licked his wounds.

I believe they can sense or maybe even see evil spirits as well.

My beagle, who never growls at anyone, once sat up in the middle of the night and started growling as if something was at the foot of my bed for several minutes!

Thank you, God, for the doggies!

That is a possibility. However, the quoted text is too unclear to make such an assumption. This "seer" would have submit a new article on the interweb for the issue to become clarified. Regarding the possibility that God may allow some souls to make an imperfect act of contrition and still be saved, such a possibility is not teachable nor taught by the Church.  It is too ambiguous, as the case for such a person would be too individualized and particular.  Such possibilities should be doubted rather than hoped.

I did not know Muslims hated dogs.  That is silly!  Sticking tongue out at you  Who could hate one of the most innocent and attractive species of His Creation?  Big Grin

Lol People should avoid from now on, using the phrase "When in Rome, do as the Romans do", as said Romans are less desirable than before to imitate.  Rolleyes

Hahaha good post!  I didn't know that about St. John Bosco! Fascinating!  I know what you mean about them sensing evil spirits.  My beagador barks at random corners sometimes, and I've seen videos where a man whose attic was infested by devils was alerted to the origin of the infestation by his dogs hiding under beds downstairs!  God's ways are fascinating, indeed!
