Are the saints prayers efficacious for relieving the suffering of the souls in Purgatory?

Are you asking if the saints can be invoked to aid the Poor Souls? Yes.

I've always wondered what that means exactly. If purging is supposed to be part of the process for those in purgatory, where is the aid being applied exactly?
