    Ron, i understand that the Holy Souls, whilst unable to help themselves, can interfere for us here on earth. Are they able to help other souls in Purgatory, I am thinking of a case where a Holy Soul once hurt someone whilst on earth. The hurt person is now also dead and is also in Purgatory.

      They help themselves, just not meritoriously. They can pray for other souls in Purgatory, as you said, because it is one of their tasks in Purgatory to make up for the harm that they did. And we are all part of the communion of saints, so the souls in Purgatory are in communion with one another. So they can pray for one another, even more generally than you said.

    November 02, 2018 Message to Mirjana

    “Dear children, My motherly heart suffers as I am looking at my children who do not love the truth, those who are hiding it – as I look at my children who do not pray with their feelings and actions. I am sad as I am saying to my Son that many of my children no longer have faith, that they do not know Him – my Son. That is why I call you, apostles of my love: you strive to look to the very depth in human hearts and there you are certain to find the little hidden treasure. To look in this way is mercy from the Heavenly Father. To seek the good even where there is the greatest evil – to strive to comprehend each other and not to judge – that is what my Son is asking of you. And I, as a mother, am calling you to listen to Him. My children, the spirit is mightier than the flesh, and, carried by love and actions, it overcomes all obstacles. Do not forget: my Son has loved you and loves you. His love is with you and in you when you are one with Him. He is the light of the world and no one and nothing will be able to stop Him in the final glory. Therefore, apostles of my love, do not be afraid to witness the truth. Witness it with enthusiasm, with works, with love, with your sacrifice, and, above all, in humility. Witness the truth to all those who have not come to know my Son. I will be alongside you. I will encourage you. Witness the love which never ends because it comes from the Heavenly Father who is eternal and who offers eternity to all of my children. The spirit of my Son will be alongside you. Anew I am calling you, my children: pray for your shepherds, pray that the love of my Son may lead them. Thank you.”

    Ron what about ghosts and hauntings I know some of them are demonic but can souls in purgatory make contact with the living also how long can a soul be in purgatory for

    • Ron Conte says:

      Some “ghosts” are probably fallen angels. Some are perhaps souls from Purgatory reminding us that the deceased are not truly gone. A soul can be in Purgatory for any length of time, even “until the end of time” (until the general Resurrection). Our Lady said at Fatima that a particular soul would be in Purgatory until the end of the world.

      The Lucia asked about the other girl, who was aged around eighteen or nineteen: “And Amelia?” This time, Our Lady said: “She will be in Purgatory until the end of the world”

      The end of the world is the time of the general Resurrection and general Judgment. So our Lady was indicating that Purgatory will never be emptied (as some claim).

    • The end of the world is the time of the general Resurrection and general Judgment. So our Lady was indicating that Purgatory will never be emptied (as some claim).

      Wouldn’t Purgatory be emptied AT the general Judgement? That is not “never”.

    • Ron Conte says:

      Yes, thanks for that clarification.
