Prayer For Holy Souls
Dearest Lord, you have taught us so many times through the Gospels to love our neighbor through almsgiving, doing good for our neighbors, and pardoning the offenses committed against us. Please, Lord, apply these and all of our works of mercy for the benefits of the poor holy souls in Purgatory in relieving their sufferings and hastening their admittance into your perfect radiant light. Thank you, Lord, for hearing and granting our prayer. St. Francis de Sales, let the mercies of Christ for the souls in Purgatory shine through us today. Amen.
Most Holy Mother and Queen of the Rosary, as we pray your most Holy Rosary now, please use the merits from our prayers to aid the holy souls in Purgatory, your children, to their eternal home, in heaven, to praise the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit with you and all the saints forever and ever. Thank you, Mother, for loving us now and forever. Amen.
Mother of our Savior, at the cross, He gave you to all of mankind, as our Mother. Regardless of how often we fail and offend your Son, you, Virgin most faithful, are still our Mother. For those who are now suffering as Holy Souls in Purgatory, please have pity of them, and show us how we may aid in alleviating their pain and suffering and hasten their release into the Merciful Presence of God. Thank you, Most Holy Mother, our Mother, for hearing our prayers and aiding your children in need. We love you. Amen.
Mother of Mercy, please help us through our daily trials and sufferings to never forget the enormous pain and suffering of the holy souls in Purgatory. Help us to see beyond our own selfish needs and to offer up all of our discomforts to you, our dearest Mother, to relieve the suffering of these poor souls. Let us be confident that in offering our sufferings to relieve their sufferings, that upon their admittance into heaven that they will always remember to pray and intercede to God to help us in our trials here on earth. This we ask, Mother, in the name of your Son, Jesus. Amen.
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace. Amen. May their souls, and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
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.
Eternal Father, I offer You the most Precious Blood of Your Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the Masses said throughout the world today, for all the Holy Souls in Purgatory, for all sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal Church, those in my own home and within my family. Amen.
O Lord God omnipotent, I beseech Thee by the Precious Blood which Thy divine Son Jesus shed in His cruel scourging, deliver the souls in purgatory, and among them all, especially that soul which is nearest to its entrance into Thy glory that it may soon begin to praise and bless thee for ever. Amen
