Prayers for the Faithful Departed


Prayer of St. Gertrude the Great.

Our Lord told St. Gertrude in a vision that the following prayer would free 1,000 souls from Purgatory each time it is said:

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.

Approval and Recommendation (sqd.) M. Cardinal Pahiarca at Lisbon, Portugal, on March 4, 1936

Prayers to Christ Crucified for the Souls in Purgatory

O Font overflowing with truth, how wearied Your countenance. O Wise Physician of human souls, how slient You remain. O Splendor of Eternal Light, how lifeless You are. O Sincere Affection how deformed Your one beautiful face has become. O Most High Divinity, in what poverty You show Yourself. O Love of my heart, how immense is Your Goodness. O Joy everlasting, O Love of my heart, how excessive must have been Your grief. My Dear Jesus, Who is one with the Father and Holy Spirit, being one and the same Divine Nature, have pity on all living creatures, and especially for the suffering souls in Purgatory.

We adore thee, Piteous Cross, adorned with the delicate members and precious blood of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

We adore Thee, O God, nailed to the cross who bleed for love of us.

My Jesus, by the sorrows Thou didst suffer in Thine agony in the Garden, in Thy scourging and crowning with thorns, on the way to Calvary, in Thy crucifixion and death, have mercy on the souls in purgatory, and especially on those that are most forsaken; do Thou deliver them from the terrible torments they endure; call them and admit them to Thy most sweet embrace in paradise. Amen.
