O holy souls in Purgatory,
Who are the certain heirs of heaven,
Souls most dear to Jesus
As the trophies
Of his Precious Blood,
And to Mary, Mother of Mercy,
Obtain for me
Through your intercession
to lead a holy life,
To die a happy death
And to attain
To the blessedness
Dear Suffering Souls,
Who languish in your
Prison of pain
And long to be delivered
In order to praise
And glorify God
By your unfailing pity
Help me at this time,
[State your intention(s) here...]
That I may obtain relief
And assistance from God.
For your intercession
I offer to God
on your behalf
The satisfactory merits
Of all my works
And sufferings of this day/week/month. (The time
that you determine.)

In pity for her Savior's woes,
Her days and even nights are closed. ... continue reading
