Catholic Author Raises Two Million to Get Souls Out of Purgatory
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 their last will and testaments over to the Roman Church to get people out of the burning fires of purgatory.
Tassone 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).

[TBC: Purgatory is both an unbiblical teaching and clearly a source of funds for the Catholic Church. Biblical salvation, however, is the blessed alternative to this hideous tradition. As Dave Hunt noted, "Because Christ paid the penalty for our sins, He died in our place. He took the judgment—Isaiah 53: 'It pleased Yahweh to bruise him. Thou hath put him to grief when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin.' Or, 'All we, like sheep, have gone astray. We have turned everyone to his own way,' but Jehovah, Yahweh, has 'laid on him the iniquity of us all.' Second Corinthians, chapter 5, tells us, 'He was made to be sin for us, he who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.' " First Corinthians 1:30 says, “He is our righteousness.”]
