Want to embark on a transformational journey on becoming the best version of yourselves, mentally, physically, spiritually, and emotionally as make a great act of charity towards Holy Souls?
Then take the 75 Hard Days Challenge for Holy Souls.
This is a Catholic version of the original 75hard.com created by Andy.
This is not a physical challenge. It is a mental challenge, designed to develop all of the characteristics you lack in life that have landed you where you are at. The physical transformations that occur are just the by-product of the mental transformations you will make.
We have taken the principles of the 75Hard and gave it a Catholic twist to it; Holy & Hard for Holy Soul version to it.
What does it entail?
75 Days of :
- Follow a diet. This can be the diet of your choice.
- You must complete a 30-minute workout (walking, running, etc.)
- Absolutely NO alcohol or cheat meals.
- Drink 1 gallon of water.
- Read 10 pages of a book (non-fiction/Spiritual). **Audiobooks/Kindle DO NOT COUNT.
- Pray for Holy Souls with assigned daily prayers from prayforsouls.org
- Pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet for the Holy Souls and those who will die alone 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
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.”
* Read my personal story with a Holy Soul.
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.
