My God! I recommend to Thee the souls of my relations,
my benefactors, my friends and my enemies,
and of those who are in Purgatory
on my account.
I recommend to Thee the souls of evangelical labourers,
of Religious and priests,
and especially of those who had charge of my soul.
I recommend to Thee the souls of those
who were most devout to the passion of Our Lord,
to the Blessed Sacrament,
to the Blessed Virgin Mary,
the souls who are most abandoned,
those who suffer most,
and those who are nearest to the entrance into paradise.

O God, Who has commanded us
to honour our father and mother,
have compassion in Thy mercy,
on the souls of my father and mother;
forgive them their sins,
and grant that I may see them
in the joy of eternal brightness.
Through Christ our Lord.
Amen. continue reading
