PRAYER FOR THE SOULS IN PURGATORY

My Lord Jesus Christ

you did not come to lose,

but to deliver the souls of men,

for whom you were the remedy and freedom

by giving your life for their rescue;

we humbly implore your ineffable clemency

and ineffable mercy,

that you may have mercy

on all the souls of the faithful departed (especially the souls of the priests)

who are tormented in the pains of purgatory,

so that those who are justly afflicted

are justly afflicted by their sins,

may by your kindness be forgiven,

for thou hast redeemed them with thy precious blood,

may they obtain through the merits

and intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary and of all your saints

and of all your Saints,

that you free them from the sorrows they suffer

and bring them to glory

where they will praise and rejoice

for ever and ever.

Amen.
