PRAYER FOR THE HOLY SOULS

O Divine Heart of Jesus, grant I pray Thee, eternal rest to the Souls in Purgatory, the final grace to those who are about to die this day, true repentance to sinners, the light of faith to pagans, and Thy blessing to me and to all who are dear to me. To Thee, therefore, O Most Merciful Heart of Jesus, I commend all these souls, and in their behalf I offer unto Thee all Thy merits in union with the merits of Thy Most Blessed Mother and of all the Angels and Saints, together with all the Masses, Communions, prayers and good works which are this day being offered throughout Christendom.

O Most Holy Heart of Jesus, shower Thy blessings in abundant measure upon the Thy Holy Church, upon the Supreme Pontiff and upon all the clergy; to the just grant perseverance; convert sinners; enlighten unbelievers; bless our relations, friends and benefactors; assist the dying; deliver the Holy Souls in Purgatory; and extend over all hearts the sweet empire of Thy love. Amen.

Heroic Act Of Charity

This prayer is especially powerful, calling to mind as it does an especially powerful intercessor with our Lord, His Mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Heavenly Father, in union with the merits of Jesus and Mary, I offer to You for the sake of the poor souls all the satisfactory value of my works during life, as well as all that will be done for me after death. I give You my all through the hands of the Immaculate Virgin Mary that she may set free whatever souls she pleases, according to her heavenly wisdom and mother’s love for them. Recieve this offering, O God, and grant me in return an increase of Your grace. Amen.

Prayer For The Poor Souls

Jesus told Saint Gertrude The Great that every time this prayer is said fervently, 1,000 souls are released in purgatory. The prayer was later extended to include living sinners:

“Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Most Precious Blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the Masses said throughout the world today for all the Holy Souls in purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the Universal Church, those in my home and within my family. Amen.”

12 Year Devotion For The Holy Souls In Purgatory

The following prayers were given in a private revelation by Our Lord Jesus Christ to St. Bridget of Sweden. They are to be prayed for 12 years. Our Lord promised the following graces to all who will have this devotion:

1. The soul who will pray these prayers will suffer no Purgatory.
2. The soul who will pray these prayers will be accepted among the Martyrs as though he had spilled his blood for the Christian faith.
3. The soul who prays them can choose three other souls whom Jesus will then keep in a state of grace that is sufficient for them to become holy.
4. No one among the four successive generations of the soul who prays these prayers will be lost.
5. The soul who prays these prayers will be made conscious of his death one month in advance.

When the person who has committed himself to pray these prayers dies before the 12 years are over, the Lord will accept the prayers as having been prayed in their entirety. If a few days of prayer are missed due to a valid reason, they can be made up for later.

This devotion was pronounced good, and was recommended by both the “Sacro Collegio de propaganda fide” as well as by Pope Clement XII. Pope Innocent X, in turn, confirmed the revelations of the Lord to St. Bridget.

That oozed out from your Body

Amid the mockeries and insults of the people.

And let perpetual light shine upon them.
May they rest in peace. Amen. (10 times)

Treating you as a false king,
They put on your shoulders
A purple cloak
Gave you a stick for your sceptre,
And crowned your head with thorns,
And in this way
Pilate presented you to the mob saying:
Look at this man!

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord
And let perpetual light shine upon them.
May they rest in peace. Amen. (10 times)

Prayer For The Most Neglected Souls

Jesus, for the sake of the agony
that you endured
during Your fear of death
at the Garden of Gethsemane,
at the Scourging,
at the Crowning with thorns,
on the Way to Calvary,
at Your Crucifixion and death,
have mercy on the souls in Purgatory,
especially on those souls
who are completely forgotten.
Deliver them from their bitter pains,
call them finally to Yourself
and embrace them in Your arms in Heaven.
Amen.
