Latin Doctor Quote Of The Day

Saint Jerome:

'At the very time when Mass is said for those souls for whom it is being offered, all their pains are lifted.'

Comment: Let us not neglect to have the Holy Sacrifice offered for those who have departed this mortal realm. These souls certainly need prayers and penances to alleviate their pains in order to bring them to the vision of He who is. By this act of charity, let us call to mind the truth that we are but dust and ashes and we too will one day lie in a coffin before the Altar.
