In any event, on a serious and pressing topic, I am in reruns here .
While it appears from the website that this piece was originally published 6 years ago, in actuality, most of it was written in 2004 as the "publisher's introduction" to the booklet Requiem Press put out on praying for the Holy Souls in Purgatory.
It is always interesting to read what you wrote (at least for me!) in the past. Not only does it take you back, you can gain insight into where you are now, compared to then. It is not always a generous comparison!
But more importantly, pray for the Holy Souls in Purgatory!
Oremus pro invicem!
