Want to embark on a transformational journey on becoming the best version of yourselves, mentally, physically, spiritually, and emotionally as you make a great act of charity towards Holy Souls?

Then take the Holiness through Wellness Challenge for Holy Souls.

What does it entail?

75 Days of :

  • Follow a diet. This can be the diet of your choice, must be healthy. 
  • You must complete a 30-minute workout (walking, running, etc.)
  • Drink water; half gallon to a gallon.
  • 20-minute spent in quite prayer time with God as we journal.
  • Read 10 minutes of a spiritual or non- fiction book.
  • Pray for Holy Souls with assigned daily prayers from prayforsouls.org
  • Pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet or Holy Souls Rosary
  • You have until you go to sleep to complete the day.
  • If you fail, you MUST start over on Day 1

 

Commit to what you can but still commit!

This challenge is really about pushing yourself to commit to your wellness journey as well to pray for the Holy Souls. Everyone walks on this journey at their own pace, some are fast waters, and others are slow walkers, but we all want to achieve holiness through our wellness. Even though the Holy & Hard for Holy Souls entails certain requirements, nothing is set in stone.

Take this to prayer, ask God if those requirements are for you at this moment, are they hard enough to challenge you but not too much to discourage you?

Use the free workshop “My Commitment” to fill in the areas of what you prayerfully believe God is calling you to do for the next 75 days and commit to it.

This is best to do before Day 1.

After you have completed the form, print and post this on your refrigerator as a method to state accountable to your challenge!

Why a Holy Soul’s version?

They are forgotten. They are in great need of your help.

Holy souls can’t pray for themselves, they need your prayers, offerings, sufferings to quench their thirst for God.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaching of Holy Souls is; “All who die in God’s grace and friendship, but still imperfectly purified, are indeed assured of their eternal salvation; but after death, they undergo purification, so as to achieve the holiness necessary to enter the joy of heaven.”

Whenever St. Faustina could, she prayed for the release of Holy Souls from purgatory.

“I offered the indulgences for the souls in purgatory” (Diary, 346).

By St. Faustina’s merciful example, we can offer up our prayers, hard work, joy, and sufferings for our forgotten brothers and sisters in Christ.

Recall that Holy Souls can bring us countless blessings even in our lives today, especially once they are in heaven, they will faithfully pray for us.

“As we enter Heaven we will see them, so many of them coming towards us and thanking us,” Archbishop Fulton Sheen once said,“We will ask, who they are, and they will say a poor soul you prayed for in Purgatory.”

 

The small sacrifice of time we made in this life will all be worth it when we see the faces of those who benefited from our prayers.

You can start this challenge any time of the year.

Join in the next group challenge on August 20th to Nov. 2nd,  Feast of All Souls!

I didn’t die in that mile!

It's been awhile since I written a blog post. Life keeps sending me curve balls. I wanted to share about my half- marathon experience that I had on February 6th. This was my 3rd half-marathon in New Orleans with my husband.  It was a beautiful day that started...

When holy meets hard.

As I am gearing up to get ready for my own challenge of Holy & Hard on February 1st, I have come across already a few bumps on the road. Andy from 75hard.com isn't kidding when he says that this is mostly a mental challenge. But as I am looking forward to the...

Being Awakened by a Holy Soul

There is nothing like having a special visitor on your birthday.  Especially a visitor that you have no clue of who they are, how they look like, not even their name.  But they visited you. They made sure to awaken in you something that has been forgotten by millions....
