Who Are the Holy Souls?


Souls who need to be purified

The Holy Souls in Purgatory are those which, at the time of death, were in a state of grace, but who need to be purified before they enter the beatific vision. The Catechism of the Catholic Church (1030 – 1031) teaches that

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, so as to achieve the holiness necessary to enter the joy of heaven.

Each year pilgrims travel to pray for the holy souls and visit the Museum of the Holy Souls in the Chiesa del Sacro Cuore del Suffragio (Church of the Sacred Heart of the Suffering Ones) in Rome. For more information on praying for the holy souls, read our Masses page.
