Father Paul of Moll: Helper of Souls in Purgatory

Father Paul of Moll
A Flemish Benedictine and Wonder - Worker of the 19th Century
By: Edward Van Speybrouck

Father Paul of Moll's remarkable life included numerous predictions. miracles. intercessions. prophecies and holy sayings. His body was found incorrupt.

Excerpts from the book:

He also said that a great number of suffering souls continually came to him to ask his prayers for their deliverance, and that at night, his bed was surrounded by suffering souls.

"The souls in purgatory are aware of the discord of the members of their families on earth, and this knowledge increases their sufferings."

Speaking of the soul of a lady deceased, Father Paul said, "She remained only one hour in purgatory, and she did not stay there any longer because she brought up her children so well." He added that by a special privilege, this lady had undergone the hour of her purgatory on the chair in which she had expired.

A lady having died after a long and painful sickness her daughter went to Steenbrugge and asked Father Paul if he thought that her mother went straight to heaven, after so many sufferings.

"Madam," he replied, "your mother would be already in heaven, if she had not spoiled her children so much. She is still in purgatory pray hard for her."

A young girl from the country asked Father Paul to say a Mass for the success of a certain affair. Rather have that Mass said for the repose of the soul of your mother who is deep down in purgatory," he replied.
