Gregorian Masses: Best way to free a soul from Purgatory

The most loving gift you can give to your deceased loved one is to make sure that he or she is not delayed eternal happiness being with God in heaven.  Read this most important message how you can help.

Arrange to have “Gregorian Masses” for a deceased loved one & you’ll likely set him or her free from purgatory!  If for some reason your beloved is already in heaven, some other lucky soul will benefit from your generosity.  Gregorian Masses are a series of 30 Masses offered on consecutive days.  The custom of offering a set of Gregorian Masses dates back to Pope St. Gregory the Great (d. 604 AD) who wrote in the DIALOGUES (4:55; PL 77: 416-421) about a monk who obtained release from Purgatory after thirty Masses were offered on his behalf.  The Catholic Church has declared the confidence of the faithful in the efficacy of Gregorian Masses to be pious and reasonable.  Here’s a partial list where to arrange for these Masses: 



















If I die before you (yes, you--the reader), I beg you to please arrange this gift offering right away and have the Gregorian Masses offered for me!  Forget the flowers and just get me the cheapest casket from or (I’m not kidding!).  [Since this is not a bad plan, you might want to look into doing this for your own funeral prep.  Check out the links above and you’ll be amazed that there is a better way to prepare for eternity.]
