This hope does not disappoint
We have all gathered here today in hope. Each one of us, in his or her heart, can repeat Job’s words … “I know that my Redeemer lives, and at last he will stand upon the earth.” The hope of re-encountering God, of all of us meeting again, as brothers and sisters: and this hope does not disappoint. Paul’s expression … was powerful: “Hope does not disappoint.”
~Pope Francis, November 2, 2017
O Most Blessed Virgin Mary, my Mother, I turn to you in supplication and by that sword which pierced your sorrowful heart at beholding your beloved Son, Jesus Christ, suffer on the cross, I pray and ask thee to help the holy souls in Purgatory.
O Eternal Father through the most Precious Blood of Jesus and through the Sorrows of Mary have pity upon the holy souls in purgatory. Amen.
