I want to pray a Rosary for the Holy Souls in Purgatory, and I was wondering if it would be okay for me to modify the Hail Mary to fit this purpose. Specifically the second half. Instead of “Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death.” I was thinking “Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for the souls in Purgatory.” Or at least something similar.
Would this be permissible? And if it is permissible, do you have any specific qualms with the idea of modifying the Hail Mary?
