Anima Sola

El Ánima Sola representa a las ánimas del purgatorio. Es el alma mas necesitada de oración por ser la mas desamparada y olvidada del purgatorio.La iglesia Católica nunca la ha reconocido como parte del santoral ni tiene oraciones para ella. Usualmente se presenta como una mujer rodeada de llamas, cabello largo y las manos levantadas o en gesto de oración. La representación del Ánima Sola es un sincretismo entre el catolicismo y el espiritismo. En muchas mesas de espiritistas en Puerto Rico suelen tener su figura al igual que la Mano Poderosa.
