The Runic Calender celebrates Gertrude’s Mass March 17th. “Benedictine and mystic writer; born in Germany, 6 Jan., 1256; died at Helfta, near Eisleben, Saxony, 17 November, 1301 or 1302. Nothing is known of her family, not even the name of her parents.
Pryor: “Eternal Father, I offer Thee the most Precious Blood of Jesus, with all the Masses being said all over the world this day, for the Souls in Purgatory.” Our Lord showed St. Gertrude a vast number of souls leaving Purgatory and going to Heaven as a result of this prayer.
The very place I presently live in, was called “Purgatory” by the owners,
but when listed for sale, the sign came down.
I am very comfortable here, but ready to move on upwards if need be.
