In July 1982 and January 1983 the visionaries of Medjugorje gave the following two testimonies on Purgatory
“There are many souls in Purgatory. There are also many souls of consecrated persons, both priests and religious men and women religious. Pray for their intentions at least the Creed and the seven Pater-Ave-Gloria. There are many souls who have been in Purgatory for a very long time because no one prays for them “.
“In Purgatory there are different levels; the deepest level is close to Hell and the highest level is near Paradise. It is not on the feast of All Saints, but at Christmas, most of the souls are freed from Purgatory. In Purgatory there are souls who pray to God with great fervor, but for these souls he does not pray on earth any relative or friend. God allows them to benefit from the prayers of others. Moreover, God allows them to manifest themselves to their own different ways in order to remind them that Purgatory exists and that they must pray that souls may approach God, who is just but good. Most people go to Purgatory; many go to Hell and only a relatively small number goes directly to Heaven “.
Then, on November 6, 1986, Our Lady gave the following message to the world through the visionary Marija Pavlovic:
“Dear children! Today I wish to invite you to pray every day for the souls in Purgatory. Every soul needs prayer and grace to reach God and the love of God. With this you too, dear children, receive new intercessors who will help you in life to understand that the things of the earth are not important to you; that only Heaven is the goal to which you must tend. Therefore, dear children, pray without ceasing to be able to help yourselves and also others to whom prayers will bring joy. Thank you for answering my call! “.
And in January 1987 the visionary Mirjana Dragicevic received a long and extraordinary message in which, among other things, the Blessed Virgin said:
“Save time to come to church from God. Enter the house of your Father! Save time to go together, and together with your family ask God’s thanks. Remember your dead. Give them joy with the celebration of Holy Mass “.
These are six powerful prayers for the souls in Purgatory, to be recited throughout the year

Amen.
Prayer for their deceased parents

Free them from their torment, call them to you and welcome them into your arms in Paradise! Our Father … Hail Mary … Requiem aeternam … Amen.
