Chaplet of St Gertrude
During one of her visions Jesus told ST. Gertrude that the following prayer
would release 1000 souls from purgatory each time it is said:
'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’
Approval and Recommendation by Cardinal Pahiarca, Lisbon, Portugal,
March 4, 1936.
If one prays the entire St. Gertrude Chaplet (see below), which is said on an
ordinary rosary, Our Lord releases 50,000 souls from purgatory each time it
How easy it would be to empty out purgatory if we each prayed this form of
the rosary just once a day!

How to pray the Chaplet of Saint Gertrude
The Chaplet of Saint Gertrude is prayed on an ordinary Rosary.
Beginning at the Cross, pray the "Apostle's Creed".
This is followed by 1 "Our Father", 3 "Hail Mary" and 1 "Glory be".
Starting on the Medal and then on the 4 large beads between each decade
(sets of 10 beads), pray the "Our Father."
On each of the small beads (in the sets of 10 beads), say the following
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 in the universal Church,
those in my own home,
and within my family.
At the end of each set of 10 beads, say the following prayers:
"Most Sacred Heart of Jesus,
open the hearts and minds of sinners
to the truth and light of God, the Father."
"Immaculate Heart of Mary,
pray for the conversion of sinners and the world."
and 1 "Glory be."
Then on the next large bead start again with the "Our Father".
Repeat above to the end of the Rosary.
