Prayer of St. Gertrude the Great for the release of souls from Purgatory

“Eternal Father, I offer you the most precious blood of your divine son, Jesus, in union with the Masses said throughout the world today for all the holy souls in purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for those in my own home and within my family. Amen.”

This beautiful prayer was shared with me by a parishioner who’s sanctity and holy character would put even a holy priest to shame. It’s a prayer which she repeats to herself every time she is aware that she is ‘thinking empty thoughts’ so as to continually keep the spiritual needs of others first in her mind and heart. We should all follow her example, both for our own edification and salvation, and for the myriad of souls released from purgatory through the graces won on their behalf through this prayer.

Here it is again.

“Eternal Father, I offer you the most precious blood of your divine son, Jesus, in union with the Masses said throughout the world today for all the holy souls in purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for those in my own home and within my family. Amen.”

Repeat often or whenever necessary.
