Prayers for the Souls in Purgatory

O Jesus, Thou suffered and died that all mankind might be saved and brought to eternal happiness.

Hear our pleas for further mercy on the souls of:

(*My Jesus Mercy!)

My dear parents and grandparents,*

My brothers and sisters and other near relatives,*

My godparents and sponsors of Confirmation,*

My spiritual and temporal benefactors,*

My friends and neighbors,*

All for whom love or duty bids me pray,*

Those who have suffered disadvantage or harm through me,*

Those who are especially beloved by Thee,*

Those whose release is near at hand,*

Those who desire most to be united with Thee,*

Those who endure the greatest sufferings’*

Those whose release is most remote,*

Those who are least remembered,*

Remember the Suffering Souls Those whose are most deserving on account of their services to the Church,*

The rich, who are now the most destitute,*

The mighty, who are now powerless,*

The once spiritually blind, who now see their folly,*

The frivolous, who spent their time in idleness,*

The poor, who did not seek the treasures of heaven,*

The tepid, who devoted little time to prayer,*

The insolent, who neglected to perform good works,*

Those of little faith, who neglected the frequent reception of the Sacraments,*

The habitual sinners, who owe their salvation to a miracle of grace,*

Parents who failed to watch over their children,*

Superiors who were not solicitous for the salvation of those entrusted to them,*

Those who strove for worldly riches and pleasures,*

The worldly-minded, who failed to use their wealth and talents in the service of God,*

Those who witnessed the death of others, but would not think of their own*

Those who did not provide for the life hereafter,*

Those whose sentence is severe because of the great things entrusted to them,*

The popes, kings and rulers,*

The bishops and their counselors,*

My teachers and spiritual advisers,*

The deceased priests of this diocese,*

The priests and religious of the Catholic Church,*

The defenders of the holy faith,*

Those who died on the battlefield,*

Those who fought for their country,*

Those who were buried in the sea,*

Those who died of apoplexy,*

Those who died of heart attacks,*

Those who suffered and died of cancer,*

Those who died suddenly in accidents,*

Those who died without the last rites of the Church,*

Those who shall die within the next twenty-four hours,*

My own poor soul when I shall have to appear before Thy judgement seat.*
