Author Susan Tassone’s passion is to get people out of purgatory. Since the Roman Catholic Church accepts money for Masses said for the dead, Ms. Tassone urges people to hand over their last will and testaments over to the Roman Church to get people out of the burning fires of purgatory.
Tassone has founded Holy Souls Mass Apostolate in 1993. All the funds raised are given to the church for Masses. She is considered an “expert” on Purgatory.
So far she has raised two million dollars for Mass stipends. She says the best way to get someone out of punishment is to have a Gregorian Mass said. The next best thing is the rosary. She also recommends the Stations of the Cross because you get ‘indulgences’ when you practice this devotion. When asked what happens if you keep having Masses said, and the person is already out of Purgatory, she responded:
The common answer is that God will apply those Masses to other souls in purgatory or to the most in need or souls in your family. But there’s more: If the soul is already in heaven, and you continue to have Masses said for them and continue to pray for them, what they get is a term we get from Thomas Aquinas — “accidental glory.”
When asked why to have Masses said for the dead, she answered:
Because God’s justice demands expiation of their sins. Christ told St. Faustina that his mercy didn’t want to send a soul to Purgatory, but his justice demands it (Diary 1226, 20).
Martin Luther would have had something to say about this. He would have rebuked it. As he should have. This is a very sad story. Money in the millions given as payment to get people out of “Purgatory.” Why does the church accept this money? Does money open the doors to heaven?
When Simon saw that the Spirit was given at the laying on of the apostles’ hands, he offered them money
People are so scared their relatives are suffering they are willing to hand over their life savings to the church to get their loved ones relief. Purgatory is for sure a doctrine of demons. It puts questions into the minds of people, “Is Jesus’ blood enough to cover me?” “Did He pay for all my sins?”
The serpent loves to whisper, “No, He didn’t. You have to pay.”
Friend, you will never be able to pay, now or later. He already paid it all. This is the Pure Gospel of Grace. By accepting this free gift is what salvation is. You can’t work it off, pay for it with money or have an installment plan. Accept the gift Jesus offers. It’s free. It’s precious. It’s why a saved sinner is saved. It’s called Good News. Going to Purgatory to be tortured to pay off your sins is not good news and it completely negates the Gospel. Stop living in fear. He is mighty to save. And when He saves, He saves totally and completely and His blood is enough to cover you.
