Recently I have found the need to share this prayer with a number of clients who’s relatives were stuck. One was a case in which a sister & niece were murdered, another was an uncle who had been misdiagnosed for years & ended up dying from cancer within months and was angry. Some spirit relatives end up in purgatory. Like it says below it is a place where a soul works toward purification. Purgatory comes from the word to “purge”. So here is where souls purge all that is negative and holding them back from experiencing paradise. Other religions believe the same. Judaism, have the same concept; Tibetan Buddhists call it bardo, Hinduism refers to it as moksha. If you feel your loved one is in need of this prayer, feel free to say it. It can’t hurt & can only help a spirit who may be in need of your love and positive energy to help themselves move on to a better place ?
