Welcome!

Last Updated: February 5, 2016 - Feast of St. Agatha

MTEP has finally been updated! All the prayers pledged since the last update have been counted. Please continue to pray and pledge! We will be updating the numbers on a regular basis moving forward.

The Mission To Empty Purgatory (MTEP) is made up of people dedicated to intercessory prayer for the Holy Souls in Purgatory. MTEP's primary objective is to say one prayer of St. Gertrude the Great for every thousand souls who have ever lived thereby ensuring that Purgatory is emptied. This is estimated to be 108 billion souls--a mammoth task!! Please add your prayers to accomplishing this task.

  • "The Holy Souls are eager for the prayers of the faithful which can gain indulgences for them. Their intercession is powerful. Pray unceasingly. We must empty Purgatory!" -- Saint Padre Pio

  • "Yet how quickly we could empty purgatory if we but really wished to." -- St John Vianney, Cure d'Ars













Will you come to the aid of the Holy Souls?
