Prayers for the Souls in Purgatory

“It is holy and wholesome thought 
to pray for the dead 
that they may be loosed 
from their sins.
2 Maccabees 12:46

Chaplet of the Holy Souls in Purgatory

This Chaplet can be prayed on rosary beads.

Begin with:
The Creed
1 Our Father
3 Hail Marys
1 Glory Be -- For the Pope’s intentions

On the 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 the Small Beads Pray:
“Crucified Lord Jesus have mercy 
on the souls in Purgatory.”
End by saying the Glory Be three times

Prayer to Deliver them from Purgatory


My Jesus, by the sorrows 
You suffered in Your agony in the Garden, 
in Your Scourging and Crowning with thorns, 
on the way to Calvary,
in Your Crucifixion and Death, 
have mercy on the souls in purgatory, 
and especially on those that are most forsaken;   
please deliver them 
from the terrible torments they endure; 
call them and admit them to 
Your most Sweet Embrace in paradise.

Prayer on Passing a Cemetery

May God and Mary bless you all,
You were once as 
we are now, and we
Will be, one day, like you.
You pray with us and we pray with you.
May Mary pray with us both.
And may He who suffered His Passion
For you, grant you everlasting rest.

Holy Water and Holy Souls

             Holy Water is to remind us 
of the 
Sacred Blood of Christ, 
by which we are cleansed 
from our sins
and when 
we bless ourselves, 
remember the Holy Souls~
~they can benefit greatly 
by sprinkling Holy Water 
with the sign of the cross 
on their graves
and recite the prayer:
"By this Holy Water 
and by Thy Precious Blood, 
O Lord wash away the sins 
of all my dear departed 
brothers and sisters in Purgatory, 
in the Name of the Father, 
  and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit."

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 all sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal Church, those in my own home and within my family.

Each time you say this prayer 1,000 souls are released from purgatory

if you repeated this prayer 10 times a day...
that would be 10,000 souls 
you released from Purgatory!! 

And in a year 3,650,000 souls!!! 
How Wondrous & Infinite is God's Mercy!
