Hi-- I’m fairly new here, and this is the first thread I’m posting, so I hope I’m doing it right.
We often pray for our deceased friends and relatives. But I got to thinking about the multitude of souls in Purgatory who have no one on earth who can or will pray from them.
Anyway, I had this idea of asking God for one soul there in particular to pray for–in other words, “adopting” a spiritual brother or sister to pray for.
I’m naming my spiritual “sister” Alice (just to make it more personal), and praying for her at opportune moments, like when I’m sitting in waiting room, standing in line at the bank or grocery store, or waiting for the red light to change.
I figure that not only will this do Alice a lot of good, but I’ll have a special friend waiting when (I hope!) I arrive in heaven.
Anybody else interested in doing the same?
