Holy Souls in Purgatory

(Everyday) O God, there is a time for everything. There is a time to be born and a time to die, that we might be reborn to Life. Hear us as we pray for all those who have died, especially our loved ones, our sisters and brothers Spiritual Children of Padre Pio, those who have no one to remember them, and (mention particular souls). Grant them eternal light, happiness and peace forever and ever. Amen.  
Sunday Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thusday Friday Saturday
Bringing God to the sick is worth more than any other cure.
Let us pray very much for the souls in Purgatory.
May Jesus always accompany, support and guide you.
Be generous in the performance of your duties.
Be what the Lord wants you to be.
Beneficence is the daughter of Providence.
Remember Jesus, meek and humble of heart.
Where virtue is absent, there is neither well-being nor love.
God cannot be found where love is absent.
No one goes to heaven without God.
Imitate Jesus with an obedience that is prompt and without discussion.
Joy of heart is the life of the soul.
When the will is lacking, there is no sin but human weakness.
Bend your knee before God.
Be patient a little while longer. Things will get better.
Defend the weak. Console those who weep.
Increase in eternal glory accompanies every victory over sin.
The soul is truly blessed that achieves the beauty willed by God.
Self-centeredness, the child of pride, is more malicious than its mother.
Repair the past and prepare for the future
Good works accompany good proposals.
The reward is not for the one who begins well, but for the one who perseveres to the end.
Repeat often to yourself: God sees me.
As God sees you, so does He judge you.
Even the least transgression of God's law will be considered
Love is never put off till later.
Charity loves to spread itself around.
Do God's will. If He is pleased, nothing matters.
The fruits are more beautiful than the flowers.
Strive to move forward. Do not go backward.
(Everyday) St. Pio of Pietrelcina, pray for us, your Spiritual Children. We journey in this life with our hearts fixed on eternity, but often confused and misled by the seductions around us. Pray that we always seek Jesus alone, His Love, His Grace, His Will, His Heart, His Spirit, that we love Him and seek no other reward in this life but to love Him more with a strong and active love. Pray that we love Him with all our heart while on earth, so that we can continue to love Him perfectly throughout all eternity.




Month of the Poor Souls in Purgatory

God of mercy and compassion, we believe that those who have died in the Lord are blessed. As we pray for the souls of those who have gone before us, we earnestly ask You, let them rest from their labors here on earth, and remember the good works they accomplished through Your grace. With each kindness we offer today, help us recall that we too will be judged according to our good deeds, and the love we have for one another. Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen..

O Mary, Mother and Queen of the Suffering Souls in Purgatory, pray for them and place our prayers together with yours, that through your almighty intercession, we too may assist them in their suffering. Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace. Amen.

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


Lord our God, the Psalmist prayed in wonder and gratitude to You when he prayed: "You have been a home for us, from one generation to the next" Hear us today as we pray for our loved ones who have died, and have always found a shelter in You. Be gracious to them still, as they await the fullness of Your promise - "home" in the Kingdom where You live forever and ever. Amen.

O Mary, ...Eternal rest ... May the souls…


Lord Jesus, our Good Shepherd, the souls of the just want for nothing in Your presence. It is You who have given them their heart's desire, You who have guided them on Your pathways, and led them to Your eternal place of refreshment. As you have prepared a banquet for them, so now fill them with Your mercy and peace. May goodness and kindness follow them to Your dwelling place forever and ever. Amen.

O Mary, ...Eternal rest ... May the souls…


Good and Gracious God, today as we pray for then souls of the faithful departed, we remember the comforting words of Jesus: " Come, you blessed of my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the creation of the world" As You, Lord, so greatly desire the hearts and souls of the created in Your image and likeness, please now call them to Yourself, and welcome them into Your Kingdom, as they welcomed You here on earth in the poor, the naked, the hungry, the thirsty and the imprisoned. We make our prayer in the name of Christ our lord. Amen.

O Mary, ...Eternal rest ... May the souls…


O Lord God, our hope and our consolation, look favorably on the souls of our deceased loved ones. As we pray today for them, and all the faithful departed, we ask that You grant the fullness of Your peace and joy to our beloved deceased who have finished the race and have kept the faith. May You give them the heavenly crown of victory, for they longed to see Your face. And one day may we all share their joy together in the Kingdom where You live forever and ever. Amen.

O Mary, ...Eternal rest ... May the souls…


Most high, all powerful, all good God, Your humble servant, St. Francis of Assisi, when considering his own death, spoke of her as "Sister Death, from whom no one can escape" In faith we believe that no one would wish to escape the good things that you have prepared for those who have loved You! So today we pray that Sister Death may embrace the souls of our loved ones whom You have called, and lead them to that new creation where you live forever and ever. Amen.

O Mary, ...Eternal rest ... May the souls…


All loving God, we praise You today for Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. In Him You have borne our griefs and sorrows; and by His wounds we are healed! As we seek to share in then joys of His resurrection, and wait to welcome Him when He returns in glory, we ask You to reward those who have died with the fulfillment of Your promise. Gather is together from then four winds into Your Kingdom which You have prepared for us, where we shall live with You forever. Amen.

O Mary, ...Eternal rest ... May the souls…

Daily Prayer to Our Lady

Mary, loving Mother and Queen of Creation, we pray through your intercession for our brothers and sisters, your children, who are saved in the blood of Christ, your Son, but still await in Purgatory the fullness of the gift that is assured them. You were chosen from among all women, you knew our pain and grief through the death of your Son. Look on us, o merciful Mother, with your eyes of motherly compassion and love, and upon all the souls who have gone before us. Pray for us and them. Protect us in our journey, and intercede for us that we may always be faithful. Pray for the Souls in Purgatory that the Lord may lead them quickly home to enjoy forever eternal life with Jesus, the blessed fruit of your womb.

Eternal Father, Son and Holy Spirit, through the intercession of Mary, Your daughter, mother and spouse, and our holy Mother, hear our prayers for the Souls in Purgatory. Grant them eternal light, happiness and peace. You live and reign forever and ever. Amen.
