Prayer For Souls In Hell

"O Christ our God...(who) on this all perfect and saving Feast, art
graciously pleased to account propitiatory prayers for those who are
imprisoned in hades, promising unto us who are held in bondage great
hope of release from the vileness that doth hinder us and did hinder
them ...send down Thy consolation...and establish their souls in the
mansions of the Just; and graciously vouchsafe unto them peace and
pardon; for not the dead shall praise thee, O Lord, neither shall they who
are in hell make bold to offer unto thee confession. But we who are living
will bless them, and will pray, and offer unto thee propitiatory prayers and
sacrifices for their souls."
