O most gentle Heart of Jesus, ever present in the Blessed Sacrament, ever consumed with burning love for the poor captive souls in Purgatory, have mercy on the souls of Thy departed servants.
Be not severe in Thy judgments, but let some drops of Thy Precious Blood fall upon the devouring flames.
And do Thou, O merciful Savior, send Thy holy angels to conduct them to a place of refreshment, light and peace. Amen.
O most compassionate Jesus, have mercy on the souls detained in Purgatory, for whose redemption Thou didst take upon Thyself our nature and endure a bitter death.
Mercifully hear their sighs, look with pity upon the tears which they now shed before Thee, and by virtue of Thy Passion, release them from the pains due to their sins.
O most merciful Jesus, let Thy Precious Blood reach down into Purgatory and refresh and revive the captive souls who suffer there.
Stretch out to them Thy strong right hand, and bring them forth into the place of refreshment, light and peace. Amen.
O blessed souls! We have prayed for thee! We entreat thee, who art so dear to God, and who art certain of never losing Him, to pray for us poor miserable sinners who are in danger of being damned and of losing God forever. Amen.
For the suffering souls in Purgatory remembering especially all those dear departed souls listed on our Saint Gertrude prayer group and for the eternal repose of Fr. Timothy Hopkins and Fr. Nicholas Gruner.
Please note: this novena is to not only aid the Poor Souls with our prayers but also to ask for their help. There will be a separate prayer event to specifically help them, from All Souls Day and the days following.
