St Gertrude’s prayer for Holy Souls

saint-gertrudeOur Lord gave the following prayer to St Gertrude the Great, to be said for the souls in Purgatory. The prayer was later extended to include living sinners as well.

There are, of course, many prayers that we can offer for the Holy Souls. We should also offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass for their release from Purgatory.

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

    Is St Gertude the Great the spiritual presence honoured by our Gertrude? A great prayer, which I shall repeat many times this month for my departed loved ones, almost all of whom died outside Holy Mother Church. I pine for them. Will I ever see them again and kiss them and embrace them and tell them that I forgive them and hear them say that they forgive me?

    Through the Divine Mercy and Grace of God, I believe you shall JH. “Ask and you shall receive”.

    Our Lady at Fatima had this to say to the little seers: “”Pray, pray very much, and make sacrifices for sinners; for many souls go to hell, because there are none to sacrifice themselves and pray for them.”

    But your ‘departed loved ones’ have you to do this for them.
