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,
for those in my own home and within my family.
[St. Gertrude the Great was a Benedictine nun to whom Jesus appeared on many occasions. Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, told Saint Gertrude that whenever the above prayer was recited piously 1,000 souls would be released from Purgatory. Saint Padre Pio advised that we should pray often for the release of holy souls from Purgatory and we should “aim to empty Purgatory.” We would be well advised to memorize this simple prayer and pray it often. This prayer has the approval and recommendation of Cardinal Pahiarca of Lisbon, Portugal 4 March 1936]
St. Gertrude The Great, Pray for Us!
Dear Jesus, Thank You for the graces You bestowed upon St. Gertrude the Great and have mercy on us!
