FOR THE HOLY SOULS IN PURGATORY
(FROM THE TRIPLE NOVENA MANUAL OF JESUS, MARY AND JOSEPH by FATHER STEDMAN)

IN THE MORNING
Hear your loved ones softly pleading
From the green graves lonesome lying
Ever crying:
“Have pity! You at least, my friends” …

FOR AND TO THE SOULS

O all you Angels of Consolation, go and visit those patient sufferers, offer for them the merits of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, and obtain their speedy union with Jesus, Whose vision is bliss, and Who yearns to have them with Him. O sweet brethren, so mightily afflicted! Knowing your fear and love of God, and your charity for souls, pray for us that we may speedily obtain what we now ask for our urgent needs and also the grace of a good life and holy death.

IN THE NOONTIME
While the hot skies are glowing
Think of the pain no relief knowing,
Their prison fires appalling
Their piteous voices calling:
“Have pity! You at least, my friends “…

FOR OUR OWN

Good Jesus, Whose loving Heart was ever troubled by the sorrows of others, look with pity on the souls of our dear ones in Purgatory. O You Who “loved Your Own” hear our cry for mercy, and grant that those whom you called from our homes and hearts, may soon enjoy everlasting rest in the home of Thy Love in Heaven. Amen.
Eternal rest grant to them, O, Lord, and let perpetual light shine on them. Amen.

IN THE EVENING
In the time of sad remembrance
Give a prayer to old friends gone
Let your heart with mournful greeting
Hear their sad appeal repeating:
“Have pity! You at least, my friends”…

HEROIC ACT OF LOVE

It does not prevent you from praying for yourself, for your friends or any other intention. By this “HEROIC ACT OF LOVE” you merely give up to the Holy Souls the satisfaction you make for the temporal punishment due to your sins.
Should you go to Purgatory, God will apply to you the prayers for the souls in Purgatory which on earth are ever offered up to Him. Those souls who may be released from their sufferings by your Heroic Act, will never prove ungrateful. In turn they will pray for you.

IN THE NIGHTTIME
By the love in life you bore them
By the tears in death shed o’er them
By their words and looks in dying
Hear their plaintive voices crying:
“Have pity! You at least, my friends”…

HEROIC ACT OF LOVE

The Church calls this Act “HEROIC” Few acts of our lives deserve to be called HEROIC. We cannot afford to throw away this opportunity to make an “HEROIC ACT OF LOVE” Make it for the Love of God.

Dear Lord, for the Love of Thy Precious Blood, I wish to make an heroic offering of all the good works I do in life in satisfaction for the temporal punishment due to my many sins, and of all the prayers offered up for me after death in favor of those souls Our Blessed Mother wishes to deliver from the pains of Purgatory. Amen.

Litany for the Poor 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 dear parents and grandparents, My Jesus Mercy
My brothers and sisters and other near relatives, My Jesus Mercy
My godparents and sponsors of Confirmation, My Jesus Mercy
My spiritual and temporal benefactors, etc.
My friends and neighbors,
All for whom love or duty bids me pray,
Those who have suffered disadvantage or harm through me,
Those whose release is near at hand,
Those who desire most to be united to Thee,
Those who endure the greatest sufferings,
Those whose release is most remote,
Those who are least remembered
Those who 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 indolent 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 talent for 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 advisors,
The priests and religious of the Catholics 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 judgment seat,

PRAYER
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them: For evermore with Thy Saints, because Thou art gracious.

May the prayer of Thy suppliant people, we beseech Thee, O Lord, benefit the souls of Thy departed servants and handmaids: that Thou mayest both deliver them from all their sins, and make them to be partakers of Thy redemption. Amen.

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord. And let perpetual light shine on them. Amen.

May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
