The Holy Souls and St. Teresa of Avila
Don’t forget that November is dedicated to the Poor Souls in Purgatory. Our Holy Mother St. Teresa of Avila had many experiences with a soul in Purgatory, and documented the experience in her writings: “The Lord told me that the young man's salvation had been in great jeopardy, but that he had received mercy for the service he had rendered to the Blessed Mother in giving that house to be a monastery of her order; however, that he would not leave purgatory until the first Mass was said there-- that then he would leave. I was so conscious of the grievous afflictions of this soul that even though I wanted to make a foundation in Toledo, I set it aside and hastened as much as I could to found a house in Valladolid...” (Foundations, Chapter 10).
