Prayers for the Holy Souls
PRAYER OF ST. GERTRUDE THE GREAT
A prayer to release many souls from Purgatory each time it is said and which was extended to include living sinners as well.
Eternal Father, I offer You 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, for those in my own home and in my family. Amen.
Devotion of St. Bernard to the Shoulder Wound of Jesus Releases many souls from purgatory each time it is prayed. O Loving Jesus, meek Lamb of God, I a miserable sinner, salute and worship the most Sacred Wound of Your Shoulder on which You bore Your heavy Cross, which so tore Your Flesh and laid bare Your Bones as to inflict on You an anguish greater than any other Wound of Your Most Blessed Body. I adore You, O Jesus most sorrowful; I praise and glorify You and give You thanks for this most sacred and painful Wound, beseeching You by the crushing burden of Your heavy Cross to be merciful to the souls in purgatory and to me, a sinner, to forgive me all my mortal and venial sins, and to lead me on towards Heaven along the Way of Your Cross. Amen. -For those attacked or tempted by evil spirits [saints.sqpn.com/patrons-against-evil-spirits/](http://saints.sqpn.com/patrons-against-evil-spirits/) *I know I mentioned the following on threads before -For my Auntie who has been in the hospital since Feb.11/09/Wed. -For my cousin who is having complications after her gallbladder surgery she had last month -For my cousin, her husband, and her 4 children that her husband may heal.
