Format: Paperback
Father John A. Nageleisen has written the best book on Purgatory ever to come into our hands. Unbelievable the amount of knowledge and facts it contains. Proofs from Scripture on the existence, location and spiritual torments of Purgatory. Tells what the fire is like, how it torments, etc. Extremely sobering. Gives the conditions of the Suffering Souls as to pain, sense, consolations, position, and unknown punishments in Purgatory. Analyzes the credibility of departed souls that have returned to warn those on earth. Includes the means of relieving the Poor Souls - holy water, candles, mass, prayers, alms, fasting, Holy Communion, the Blessed Mother, the saints, etc. Covers the motives for helping the Poor Souls, and how they assist their benefactors in both spiritual and temporal affairs. How they assist us in death and before the Tribunal of Judgement if we have helped them. Contains novenas, prayers, litanies, rosaries and the Seven Offerings of the Most Precious Blood for the Suffering Souls. They await our charity. Beautiful illustrations. Imprimatur of several bishops.

Format: Paperback
Good to see a reprint of this work which teaches and reminds us on why we should remember the dead! The dead are not so dead insofar as they have passed onto another plane of existence. For those that are destined for Heaven and yet die on this plane with the stain of sin on their souls, purgation awaits them in the afterlife. This book explains how and why we should continue praying for our dead even after their physical passing on earth.

For skeptics and unbelievers, this book isn't scary enough to scare any reader. Unbelievers in the supernatural need shocking jolts and full-blown apparitions and visions to wake them up. This book isn't for these types of people.

For those that ask: "what's in it for me?", this book exhorts with inspiring stories and apparitions of the holy souls who hear our prayers and how they can return our favors and similarly help us in ways that are inexplicable. Includes historical examples of favors returned from beyond the grave!

As a way to kickstart your enthusiasm, or lack thereof, the book concludes with a list of daily prayers for the holy souls.

Do you continue to doubt that sufferings end at your physical death on earth?

So, you want to be scared?

Ask and pray to see the fires!
By God's grace, you will see them while you're still living on earth now!

Start saying your prayers today.

Tomorrow may be too late!

Réquiem ætérnam dona eis, Dómine,
et lux perpétua lúceat eis.
Requiéscant in pace. Amen.

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon them.
May they rest in peace. Amen.

The review written by "A reader Rockford, IL" is a very accurate review and this book is definitely five star quality. If you didn't believe there are suffering souls in purgatory prior to reading this book you will truely be a believer after reading this book.

One of the best books on Purgatory you will find! It is absolutely thorough in its treatise, and inspiring in helping encourage us to pray for those who have passed on before us. Written in 1895, it contains all that the Church believes about Purgatory without watering anything down. Very inspiring and faith building.
Two other excellent and recent works are: "The Biblical Basis For Purgatory" by John Salza and "Get Us Out Of Here!!" by Nicky Eltz (an interview with the late Maria Simma) All three are great......
