Catherine also felt very sorry for the Poor Souls in Purgatory. She prayed and did penance for them.
Once God let her know that a certain man was in Purgatory. So great was her love that she offered to
suffer for him. God listened to her prayer and she suffered greatly for forty days.
At the age of sixty-seven, after a very long and painful illness, St. Catherine joined Jesus, her Beloved Spouse in heaven.
Let us help the poor souls in Purgatory with our prayers, so that they may soon go to Heaven. When they are in Heaven, they will pray for us.
