Re: Prayer of St Gertrude the Great for the Souls in Purgatory V
Eternal Father, I offer you the most precious Blood of your 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 own home and within my family.
2 Macabees 12:45
" It is therefore a holy and wholesome thought to pray for the dead, that they may be loosed from sins. "
" ... you should know that there is present with you the angel whom God has appointed for each man…This angel, who is sleepless and cannot be deceived, is always present with you; he sees all things and is not hindered by darkness. You should know, too, that with him is God"…-St. Anthony the Great
