Virgin of Carmel Saving Souls in Purgatory

Virgin of Carmel Saving Souls in Purgatory, 17th century, unknown artist.

His gaze, the touch of his heart, heals us through an undeniably painful transformation ‘as through fire.’ But it is a blessed pain, in which the holy power of his love sears through us like a flame, enabling us to become totally ourselves and thus totally of God. … The pain of love becomes our salvation and our joy. ~ Pope Benedict XVI, Spe Salvi

Especially during the month of November, let’s remember to pray for the holy souls in Purgatory.
