RESOLUTION: Once a year go in pilgrimage to a shrine of Mary, even one very close to my home, or make a spiritual retreat.
 


The Our Lady of Lourdes Novena has been a traditional part of the spirituality of our trips for many

years now.  So, we will continue it again this year.  But we have also expanded our pre-trip

devotions to include prayers for/to the Poor Souls in Purgatory.  For some time now, this ministry

has had a great devotion to the Poor Souls, and they have become very prevalent in our daily

devotions.  We invite everyone, whether you are traveling with us or not, to make use of the

devotion listed below.  Please pray the St. Gertrude Prayer daily.  And, if possible, pray the

Chaplet for the Poor Souls daily.  If not possible, please consider praying it at least once per

week.  And please also remember how efficacious it is to have Masses celebrated frequently

for the Poor Souls in  Purgatory.  They depend on our prayers, and can also be powerful

intercessors on our behalf.
