If you are Catholic then you are familiar with the word Purgatory. Purgatory is the place that the Soul goes after death of the body to complete it's purification. The Holy Souls suffer so much and are in desperate need of our prayers. My hope is that this page will encourage everyone to pray more for the Holy Souls in Purgatory.

"The fire of Purgatory is the same as the fire of Hell; the difference between them is that the fire of Purgatory is not everlasting." ~Saint Jean Marie Baptiste Vianney

The following prayers not only help the tormented Souls in Purgatory but they also help us. Because each Soul that is released will pray for us when they reach Heaven. Here is a quote from Saint Alphonsus Maria de Liguori regarding this very thing: "The practice of recommending to God the souls in Purgatory, that He may mitigate the great pains which they suffer, and that He may soon bring them to His glory, is most pleasing to the Lord and most profitable to us. For these blessed souls are His eternal spouses, and most grateful are they to those who obtain their deliverance from prison, or even a mitigation of their torments. When, therefore, they arrive in Heaven, they will be sure to remember all who have prayed for them."

"It is therefore a holy and wholesome thought to pray for the dead, that they may be loosed from their sins" 2 Macabees 12:46

PRAYER OF SAINT GERTRUDE, THE GREAT

 

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

 

This is a powerful prayer said to release 1,000 souls from Purgatory each time it is said!

CHAPLET OF THE HOLY SOULS

This Chaplet can be prayed on a set of Rosary Beads

 

Begin with: The Creed, then 1 Our Father, 3 Hail Marys, 1 Glory Be for the Pope’s intentions.

 

On Large Beads Pray: O holy souls draw the fire of God’s Love into my soul to reveal Jesus crucified in me, here on earth, rather than hereafter in Purgatory.

 

On Small Beads Pray: Crucified Lord Jesus have mercy on the souls in Purgatory

 

End with: Glory Be three times

Eternal rest grant unto them O Lord,

And let perpetual Light shine upon them.

May their souls

And the souls of all the faithful departed

Through the mercy of God

Rest in peace.

Amen.

O Gentlest Heart of Jesus, ever present in the Blessed Sacrament, ever consumed with burning love for the poor captives souls in Purgatory, have mercy on the soul of Thy servant, {NAME}; bring {HIM/HER} from the shadows of exile to Thy bright home in Heaven, where we trust Thou and Thy Blessed Mother have woven for her a crown of unfading bliss. Amen.
