Purgatorian Manual (softcover)

The Purgatorian Manual is a devotional aid in praying for the Holy Souls.  For every day of the month it has a short meditation on some aspect of Purgatory, a related prayer for the Holy Souls, a special intercession for the Holy Souls, and a practice for the day.  It was originally published in 1946 by the Redemptorist Fathers.  As far as I know it is in the public domain.  The original manual had a bunch of extra prayers in addition to the daily entries, but most of those are easy enough to find elsewhere, so I did not reproduce them here.

Readers comments:

An excellent booklet/manual on Purgatory.  St. Alphonsus Liguori you wouldn’t expect anything else but brilliance. The manual gives all the advise on indulgences, the importance of prayer for those who have died (relatives/friends/strangers) but it instructs and guides the reader for a whole month. Each day has nice reflection without going over the top with an intention. I would recommend to anyone, but particularly Catholics who do not know about this, other Christians and a person who is genuinely interested. ~ Mr. Devlin
