#1 New Release on Amazon.com

“Today bring to Me all mankind, especially all sinners, and immerse them in the ocean of My mercy.” — Jesus to St. Faustina

Throughout her Diary, St. Faustina speaks of Jesus’ call for the conversion of souls. Through prayer and sacrifice, the Lord calls us all to strive for our own conversion, and for the conversion of the whole world.

Perhaps you’ve tried everything to draw your friend or family member back to faith in God. In St. Faustina Prayer Book for the Conversion of Sinners, best-selling author Susan Tassone shows you how to place the lives of all you love into God’s merciful hands. Known worldwide as “the purgatory lady,” Susan invites you to learn how to live the message of conversion daily, to avoid purgatory, and to become more faithful in praying for others.

St. Faustina Prayer Book for the Conversion of Sinners is a much-needed treasure which allows us to glimpse the mercy of God and his call to conversion. I pray that all who read this book will be touched by God’s love and experience the grace needed to follow Jesus more closely as his disciples.

— Cardinal Seán P. O’Malley, OFM Cap.
Archbishop of Boston


“In her most recent book, Susan Tassone – our very own ‘Apostle for the Souls in Purgatory’ – uses the spiritual wisdom of St. Faustina to call us all to conversion. Use it faithfully to pray for relatives and friends, and apply it to yourself to help with your own growth in holiness.”

— Greg Erlandson, Editor in Chief, Catholic News Service

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.
