The Souls in Purgatory are powerless to help themselves. They cannot do penance, nor offer satisfaction, nor gain indulgences, nor receive the Sacraments. They cannot pray for themselves. We, who are still on earth, can share with them the Graces which God so generously and abundantly gives us.
Our Father, three Hail Marys, Glory Be, De Profundis
Most beloved Jesus, by the merits of Thy five wounds, here the pleas and released from the torments of Purgatory the faithful soul that did the most good on earth. Place it today at Thy heavenly throne that it may join in honoring Thee and guiding me to live according to its dictates.
