...I asked the holy souls in purgatory to obtain for me good news on my dads test results this week...
Dear one, I am so very very sorry to hear about your father. I will pray for him I promise and pray for you too.
Perhaps this is not the time for a lesson but here goes (with all charity) the holy souls in purgatory are in a position to obtain nothing for you. Yes, they are in a position to ask God for favors for you and love to do so but they do not have the power to heal your father!
Dear one, the one granting healing to your Father is the Almighty God, but you already know this don't you. Many of us out of fear or desperation try everything within our grasp.
You can have millions of Masses said for the Holy Souls in Purgatory and it is not a guarantee of anything happening here on Earth. This isn't a system where we get Masses said for them and they obtain favors for us as if some tit-for-tat or business arrangement. What we need to remind ourselves always is to seek the will of God.
Trust in Jesus. He loves you so very very much and wants to be close to you.
You are depressed and are carrying a heavy cross of sadness and anxiety. Think of our Lord Jesus Christ. Remember that he didn't want his cross either! In fact he asked for it to Please be taken away! Even so he surrendered to the Father's will. You do not want this cross to bear and neither does your Father. Try and be Christ like as best as you can and embrace the crosses that you cannot avoid. Love and Peace await you even though it seems impossible to see. God bless you.
