Saint Gertrude Prayer For The Souls In Purgatory

Saint Gertrude Prayer For The Souls In Purgatory

O Lord Jesus Christ, who through the bloody sweat which Thou didst suffer in the Garden of Gethsemane hast vouchsafed to come again into the world to save it, we beseech Thee that Thou wouldst deign once more to visit these souls in purgatory and release them from their pains. By Thy most bitter Passion and death on the Cross hast Thou redeemed us; by Thy Resurrection hast Thou restored us to life eternal; by sending down the Holy Ghost upon us hast Thou bestowed upon us Thy sevenfold gifts in one Holy Sacrament; O most sweet Jesus, through all these great benefits which Thou hast bestowed upon mankind out of Thy love for them and by virtue of Thy infinite power over all things visible and invisible, vouchsafe also now through this prayer of ours to liberate from their torments those who are detained there only because they were not sufficiently cleansed when they left this life. We know not how much they have suffered during their long exile therein nor what further suffering remains for them still on earth before they can enter into heaven at last; but we do know that if You were willing to take pity on them today You could bring about their release forthwith. Therefore we pray Thee mercifully through Thine infinite love for mankind: have mercy on these souls!

O most sweet Jesus, through the bloody sweat which Thou didst suffer in the Garden of Gethsemane, have mercy on these Blessed Souls.

O most sweet Jesus, through the bloody sweat which Thou didst suffer in the Garden of Gethsemane, have mercy on these Blessed Souls. Amen.
