Our Lord dictated the following prayer to St. Gertrude to release 1000 Souls from purgatory each time it is said. St Gertrude showed “tender sympathy towards the souls in purgatory” and urged prayers for them. She is therefore invoked for souls in purgatory. Let us recite this powerful prayer whenever possible for all the precious souls who long to be united with Almighty God.
Eternal Father, I offer Thee the most Precious Blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus Christ, in union with the Masses said throughout the world today, for all the Holy Souls in Purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the Universal Church, those in my own home and within my family. Amen.
