Fountain's Abbey, Yorkshire, England


A pictures showing what is left of a monastery after an earlier devastation.

And the consequences of the curse that was put on the perpetrators.

"Of the 43 noble families implicated with the king at the time of the suppression of the monasteries, 32 are now extinct, of which 15 had become extinct within fifty years. Members of the 9 families that are not extinct have been plagued by misfortunes too numerous to list here, and cannot be said to have 'thrived' ".

For the Holy Souls in Purgatory

in the last days of November, Month of the Holy Souls

St. Gertrude Prayer

Our Lord Jesus Christ revealed the following prayer to St. Gertrude the Great. The Lord promised that each time it is said, 1,000 souls would be released from purgatory (and enter Heaven):

Eternal Father, I offer Thee the most precious Blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the Masses said throughout the world today, for all the holy souls in purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal Church, those in my own home, and within my family. Amen.
