Prayer for the Souls in Purgatory, Prayer for Those in Their Last Agony

Christ's Mercy for the Souls in Purgatory

Prayer for the Holy Souls in Purgatory

Have Mercy of gentle Jesus on the souls detained in purgatory.  Thou Who for their ransom didst take upon Thyself our human nature and suffer the most cruel death, pity their sighs and tears shed when they raise their longing eyes toward Thee; and by virtue of Thy Passion, cancel the penalty due to their sins.  May Thy Blood, O tender Jesus, Thy Precious Blood, descend into purgatory to solace and refresh those who there languish in captivity.  Reach forth Thy hand to them, and lead them into the realms of refreshment, light and peace. Amen.

During the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass souls in Purgatory are refreshed by the Blood of Christ

Prayer for Those in Their Last Agony

O Most Merciful Jesus, Lover of Souls: I pray Thee, by the agony of Thy Most Sacred Heart, and by the sorrows of Thy Immaculate Mother, cleanse in Thy Blood the sinners of the whole world who are now in their agony and are to die this day.

Heart of Jesus Agonizing, have mercy on the dying.
