Review

Over the years, Susan Tassone has been tirelessly writing and teaching about this revered tradition of praying for the Holy Souls in Purgatory. Her meticulous research and attention to both historical and spiritual detail has helped many to understand more deeply the value of this singular devotion and selfless way of prayer. She has brought a whole new dimension to this devotion, seeing it through the spiritual writings and traditions of saints throughout the centuries. --Cardinal Ivan Dias

From the Inside Flap

Let the saints inspire you to intercede for the holy souls in purgatory!

Throughout the ages the devotions, prayers, and practices of the Communion of Saints have been offered up on behalf of souls in purgatory, the "Church Suffering." The saints' ardent desire to intercede for the holy souls impelled them to pray ceaselessly for their eternal rest.

This inspiring book shows how "you" can join the saints in this act of divine charity, thereby attaining spiritual gifts for acts done for the souls that cry out to us for relief.

By Dolores J. Madlener on October 24, 2009
Format: Paperback
You've heard of "Ghost Busters" - but ever hear of "Purgatory Busters"? Author Susan Tassone is one. Her latest little book, is a blueprint for becoming apostles of purgatory.
Tassone is your diminutive lady-next-door, who moonlights as a warrior. She plays a recurring drumbeat about the holy souls. This is her fifth book on the subject.
This time she writes on the saints' concern for the poor souls. It is compelling and foundational. Her sources are impressive. For instance, the Vatican's Prefect of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples wrote the preface.
And she writes in the language of ordinary Catholics: "Purgatory is an emergency entrance to heaven for those who have wasted grace on earth."
She answers questions, like, "What is the origin of All Souls Day on Nov. 2?" or "What do the holy souls suffer?"
Other useful chapters deal with the practice of Gregorian Masses, why alms-giving (those pesky charity requests that fill a mailbox) is a way of doing penance for the holy souls and for the living, too. The book is packed with brief stories of saints' devotion to the holy souls.
The reader doesn't close this book frustrated by "wanting" to do something, but not knowing where to begin. At the end the author lists pages of seasonal (not just November) "actions" to implement on behalf of the poor souls. Like, "fast on Fridays from gossiping or smoking; pray for those who have died when you read the newspaper obituary page; join a parish bereavement committee; and teach children to pray for the holy souls in their night prayers." There's even a novena taken from thoughts Pope Benedict XVI has voiced about the poor souls.
This book calls a person to supernatural charity. "... it is from us alone that the holy souls in purgatory expect relief ... we are their only resource ... heaven encourages them; we deliver them."
Purgatory Busters, unite!

I can't believe Susan packed so much into this inspirational book. It covers everything you want to know about Purgatory, and the fact that the book has an Imprimatur assures that it does not deviate from Church teachings. Susan uses Scripture, the Catechism, quotes of the saints and the popes to support her writing. The stories of the saints are fascinating. I could hardly put it down. I loved the analogies and personal anecdotes she used to help us understand better and the humor she sprinkled in places. What I also liked were the practical suggestions of things to do (novenas.devotions, etc.) to help the holy souls and ourselves as well. The beautiful original artwork on the cover is a perfect picture of what is inside the book. It instructs and inspires. This is Susan's best yet!

This book is very informative. When you read this, it makes you aware of how to pray for and help those who have died. It is very important that we remember the poor souls.

This is a good book, easy to read and understand. I have had an devotion for the Souls in Purgatory for over 10 years now. So I'm always looking for a new book on the subject. I do own all of Susan Tassone's books. this is not her best but very informative. My personal collection on books on purgatoy is large. so when ever there are new books out I survey the book and author as well. I like Susan's way of writing and her devotion to the souls. so susan I'm looking foreward to her next book.

This book is so packed with information that comes alive for you. It touches your own soul and is invaluable for a beginner and expert alike. I saw her speak at the Midwest Catholic Family Conference in Wichita Ks this month, she was fantastic & captivating...I had never heard of her before until then. I later went to her booth and met her and her assistant. She's lovely and so little and petite, lol. I bought this book and have been reading it but now I can't find it, hopefully someone that needed more than me now has it, this is my 2nd copy. Get it, you won't regret it.

Susan Tassone has spent years researching this area and this book will be of great help to anyone that wants to or does believe in Purgatory. It covers all of the questions that we have had and gives the answers and resources all in one place, her book. I have shared it with many others that are also seeking the truths of the faith.

This is a great book explaining why and how we should pray for the poor souls in Purgatory. They suffer and our prayers help them. And as we pray for them, they intercede for us, how perfect! Short book and an easy read which gives us much benefits.

All of Susan Tassone's book are important, especially those that teach us about the Holy Souls in Purgatory, what life is like there, how they can help us greatly in our lives and their great need for our prayers, as they cannot pray for themselves while they are there, but through our prayers we can shorten their time in Purgatory and quicken the departure to Heaven. Tassone's books are very important to any Christian who seeks to please God and fulfill his or her spiritual life and responsibilities.
