On "offering it up" for the souls in Purgatory...from Sister Mary Martha

The unflappable Sister Mary Martha answers a reader's question about "offering up" sufferings for the souls in her own inimitable style.
Read the whole thing, but I especially like this paragraph:

3. A a sacrifice for a soul in no good if it's given begrudgingly. You don't give your old Aunt Sadie a wad of wrapping paper with no tape, slung around a box of melted chocolate and say with you lower lip out, "here's your gift." Buck up, stop whining and dig up some enthusiasm.
