The charming tale of twins Ben and Hope who become "prayer pals" with Mr. Ray, an elderly parishioner, is told in New Friends Now and Forever. They agree to pray for one other and to assist him in praying for his late wife. Along the journey, Hope and Ben discover that purgatory exists and that there is nothing to fear since it is a unique method for God to express His love for us. What's more, the finest part? The youngsters learn that the strength of their prayers aids the faithful dead in their journey to paradise and that those souls will plead for them, becoming their "forever friends."
