Do This One Thing Today..
We Are Only Promised This Moment.. Make The Ultimate Sacrifice For Your Departed Ancestors
We are all born of a mother, we will all lose someone near and dear to us in our lifetimes, and we too will all die one day. We can also agree we all have a soul. These are universal truths that bind us all.
This message is to honor the lost souls of all our ancestors, regardless of religious beliefs or any other human conditions being hurled our way these days, which drive a wedge between us and cause division.
I don’t care what religion you are, I ask you, I plead with you, to please listen to or read this in its entirety before dismissing it out of hand. I care about you and your life. I also care equally about your ancestors who have departed, especially over the last 130 plus years (137 to be exact). Those souls are the most vulnerable right now.
I’ve chosen 130 or so years ago for a reason. It was around that time when the devil asked God for permission to destroy His Church. In doing so, the devil's ultimate plan was to destroy the world, so he could acquire all of our ancestors, as well as our very own souls. Don’t think in terms of your life right now. Don’t think of your flesh, but rather think of your soul. Here’s why I say that.
Life is defined in Merriam-Webster's dictionary as “energy and spirit”. It states life is your “spiritual existence that transcends your physical death.” Think about life in these terms and watch your whole world change. That’s not what this is about, though. This is very specific to your lost loved ones, so I respectfully ask you to listen up.
I sat back the other week and just observed. I watched, read, and listened to the many opinions of those who have platforms chime in on their own views regarding the events that transpired last Friday, July 16, 2021. For those who are confused right now as to what I am referring to, let me explain. Please keep an open mind and remember my plea to you that it's not about religion, it’s about the souls of all our ancestors. We all can agree we have a bond that unites us all in that we have all lost someone we love and want them to find peace.
The mainstream media has actually reported on this, so there is a good chance, at the time you're reading or listening to this, you have at least heard about it. Maybe you didn’t pay attention to it, but it probably came up somewhere on your newsfeeds. I was inundated with alerts moments after the release of this news.
The Pope, on July 16, 2021, the Feast Day of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, which is the Feast of something called the Brown Scapular, released ‘Traditionis custodes’. It’s a document altering the previous Popes’ official teachings to celebrate what is called the “Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite”, also known as the Tridentine Mass or the Traditional Latin Mass.
This was the Mass Catholics attended up until Vatican II.
The alteration Pope Francis has issued is trying to forbid this Mass from not only being said now but also to stop its future existence.
Why is this important to you and why you should care?
Catholics believe the Light of the World is Jesus. They believe that Light is magnified by His Mother, for so the Bible says.
Catholics believe (or know), and science now backs up the belief, that when we receive the Holy Eucharist we are in full communion with Christ. We consume the truly Live and Present Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus. He stays with us, and so we carry him with us as we go about our day-to-day lives. Each encounter we experience, we bring His Light to others. Some are aware of this; others (currently sitting at 70% of Catholics) do not. Either way, it’s scientifically proven; and it does happen. For those of you who’re interested in learning about the scientific proof, you can simply Google “Eucharistic miracles”. My personal favorite is the one in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Many Catholics prefer the Latin Mass because it was the Mass our ancestors celebrated and attended. It is the mass that has produced many great Saints. We want to retain that closeness to them, and so not having it impacts some in great ways.
Now that you know why some Catholics prefer the Latin Mass over the newer one, let me get to why I am writing and sharing all this with you.
I would like to bring to your consciousness a very saintly man we call “Padre Pio”. He died in 1968 and, so, he is a saint for our modern times. As a child, he had visitations from both Jesus and His Mother (Mary). He eventually became a priest and received the Stigmata, the Wounds of Christ. He carried these Wounds for 50 years.
He used to pray “Grandma’s Jewelry”, aka the Holy Rosary, upwards of 30 times a day. He did this because his heart was joined to both the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of His Mother. He knew praying the Rosary was a weapon the devil hated. He prayed for the departed souls in Purgatory.
In case you don’t believe in Purgatory, perhaps you should find and listen to my podcast and writings on the subject. I also have a static link on this site to a museum in Italy that contains artifacts of souls visiting loved ones, and asking for prayers to get released from Purgatory.
Here is the official teaching of the Catholic Church on purgatory.
“All who die in God's grace and friendship, but still imperfectly purified, are indeed assured of their eternal salvation; but after death, they undergo purification, to achieve the holiness necessary to enter the joy of heaven. The Church gives the name Purgatory to this final purification of the elect, which is entirely different from the punishment of the damned” (CCC 1030-1031).
Because Padre Pio was such a “voice” for the departed souls, he was often attacked by the devil. There is one particular story I want to quickly share with you before asking for your help.
One day, he received a visit from a soul. The man gave him his name, the date he died, and how he died. He passed as a result of a fire he caused by smoking a cigarette, as he fell asleep, before putting it out.
He said God permitted him to visit Padre Pio. He needed a Mass said for him, along with Padre Pio’s prayers. They were able to confirm all the man's information regarding his passing. Padre Pio said the Mass and the man was then freed into Heaven and was able to truly begin his life (Padre Pio received confirmation the man was now in Heaven).
Our loved ones, our ancestors, need to all reach Heaven so they can help us all here on earth. We don’t know for certain whether they have reached their final destinations. We also don’t know who they are assigned to help once they get there, which is why it's so important right now, in these difficult times, to “love thy neighbor”.
This help comes from Heaven as God uses the Saints along with the saints (the departed souls who have entered Heaven and joined the Saints) to bring you guidance and direction to help you navigate your life.
This should not be viewed as a Catholic “thing” alone, as most Christian denominations believe in the Apostles’ Creed, which declares, “[we believe in] the communion of Saints.”
Here are some quotes from Padre Pio before his death:
“After my death, I will do more. My real work begins after I am gone.”
Here is another one: “Once I take on a soul as my spiritual child, I take on their entire family.”
And finally: “I will not cross the gates of Heaven until every one of my spiritual children’s souls is saved.”
On his death bed, he requested prayers and Masses be said for his own soul, fully knowing the agreement he made with God. Perhaps he knew this time would come and this request I am about to share with you would be extended.
Padre Pio dedicated his entire life to Jesus and the salvation of millions of souls.
He only celebrated the Latin Mass!
In honor of him, his last request, for the repose of his soul, as well as for the souls of your dearly beloved and departed family and friends, here is what I am asking of you.
He deserves his request to be honored, don’t you think?
Go to your local Catholic Church; petition for a Mass to be said for your loved one, as well as for the repose of the soul of Padre Pio; and specifically explain, with reverence and humility, that you would like it to be done only in the Extraordinary Form (Latin Mass), to honor Padre Pio.
In addition, ask the Priest if he would supply all those who attend that Mass a Green Scapular. This is a Scapular not associated with any religious order or group. It is made for those who are not of the faith. It is designed to allow God a sliver of an opening to penetrate the hearts of all through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Ask the priest to announce to those in attendance at the Mass to take a Green Scapular and give it out to others.
The back of the Scapular reads: “Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death.”
It requests a happy death for those who die wearing it and it also protects those who wear it against the wicked one.
Also, ask the priest if he would consider praying the original Michael the Archangel prayer from the 1880s at the end of Mass. You can find it on this blog, as well. This is important and not to be overlooked.
Ask the priest to take this request to his bishop if there is a problem or concern with having a Latin Mass said.
If you have lost someone, even if you endured a miscarriage, please consider doing this today, as we are only promised this moment. You don’t have to be of faith to do this. Why take the risk if all I am sharing with you could be true and free your loved ones from Purgatory? It certainly can’t hurt, plus, this was Padre Pio’s request for his own soul.
The entire month of July is dedicated to the Most Precious Blood of Jesus.

One final thought to keep in mind for possibly my next post or podcast: “You will be surprised to find in Paradise souls you never expected to be there.” ~Padre Pio
