POWERFUL PRAYER TO SAVE SOULS
by St. Therese of Lisieux
ETERNAL Father, since Thou hast given me for my inheritance the
Adorable Face of Thy Divine Son, I offer that Face to Thee. I beg Thee,
in exchange for this coin of infinite value, to forget the ingratitude of
souls dedicated to Thee and to pardon all poor sinners.
THE ROSARY FOR THE POOR SOULS IN PURGATORY
It is a practice earnestly recommended to all persons who desire to
assist the “proor Souls.” It is said on your regular Rosary beads.
On the Cross: De Profundis or 1 Our Father and 1 Hail Mary.
DE PROFUNDIS
Psalm 129
Out of the depths have I cried unto Thee, O Lord: O Lord, hear my voice.
Let Thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplication,
If Thou, O Lord, wilt mark iniquities: Lord, who shall abide it?
For with Thee there is merciful forgiveness: and because of Thy law I have waited for Thee, O Lord.
My soul hath waited on His word: my soul hath hoped in the Lord.
From the morning watch even until night let Israel hope in the Lord.
For with the Lord there is mercy; and with him is plenteous redemption.
And He shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost, as it was in the beginning,
is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. Amen.
On the Single Bead after the Cross:
Eternal rest give unto them, O Lord; and
let perpetual light shine upon them. Amen.
On the next three beads:
ACT OF FAITH:
My God, I believe in Thee, because Thou art Truth itself.
ACT OF HOPE:
My God, I hope in Thee because Thou art infinitely good.
ACT OF CHARITY:
My God, I love Thee with my whole heart and above all things,
because Thou art infintely perfect.
EACH OF THE FIVE DECADES:
10 TIMES:
Sweet Heart of Jesus, be my love.
Sweet Heart of Mary, be my salvation.
ONCE, after each set of 10 beads:
Eternal rest give unto them, O Lord; and
let perpetual light shine upon them. Amen.
END WITH:
Jesus, meek and humble of Heart,
make my heart like unto Thine.
Our Lady of the Sacred Heart, pray for us.
St. Joseph, model and patron of those who
love the Sacred Heart of Jesus, pray for us.
NOTE:
Each of these prayers carries a partial indulgence each time they are devoutly said.
DEVOUT AFFECTIONS ON THE PASSION OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST
It was revealed to St. Gertrude that reading and meditating on the Passion are far more useful and efficacious than all other spiritual exercises. As those who handle flour cannot avoid contracting some of the flour’s powdery substance, so no one, however imperfect his devotion may be, can occupy his mind with the Passion of Our Lord without receiving some benefit therefrom. And, however cold and lukewarm our devotion, Our Lord will look upon us with greater long-suffering and mercy if we never omit the memory of His Passion.
FIRST PRAYER
O Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal sweetness and jubilee of those who love Thee, remember all the presentiment of grief Thou didst endure from the moment of Thy conception, and especially at Thy
entrance into Thy Passion, when Thou didst say: My soul is sorrowful even unto death; and when, by reason of Thy overwhelming dread and anguish and grief, Thou didst sweat, as it were, drops of Blood trickling down upon the ground. Remember all the bitterness of Thy sorrow when Thou wast seized upon by the Jews, accused by false witnesses, condemned by three judges, buffeted and smitten, spit upon, scourged, and crowned with thorns. O sweetest Jesus, I implore Thee, by all the sorrows and insults Thou didst endure, have mercy on me, a sinner.
SECOND PRAYER
O Jesus, paradise of the delights of God, remember now all the dread and sorrow Thou didst
endure when Pilate pronounced on Thee sentence of death; when the godless soldiers laid the
heavy Cross on Thy shoulders, and fastened Thee thereon with rude and blunted nails,
cruelly stretching Thy sacred limbs so that all Thy bones could be numbered: I beseech Thee,
vouchsafe to pronounce a merciful sentence on me in the day of judgment, and deliver me
from all punishment. Amen.
THIRD PRAYER
O Jesus, Heavenly Physician, remember now the languor and the pain Thou didst endure
when lifted upon the Cross, when all Thy bones were out of joint, so that no sorrow was like
to Thy sorrow, because, from the sole of Thy foot to the top of Thy head, there was no
soundness in Thee; when, notwithstanding, Thou didst put away the feeling of all Thine
own griefs, and pray to Thy Father for Thine enemies, saying: Father, forgive them;
for they know not what they do. By this, Thy charity and Thy mercy, grant that the
dignity and worth of Thy Passion may be the entire remission of all my sins. Amen.
FOURTH PRAYER
O Jesus, mirror of the eternal splendor, remember now that sadness which filled
Thy Heart when Thou didst behold in the mirror of Thy Divinity the reprobation of
the wicked and the multitude of the lost; and by the depth of the compassion Thou
didst show to the robber on the cross, saying: This day thou shalt be with Me in
Paradise, I beseech Thee, O compassionate Jesus, show me Thy mercy in the
hour of my death. Amen.
FIFTH PRAYER
O Jesus, King most beloved, remember now the mournful desolation of Thy Heart,
when Thou, forsaken by all, wert mocked as Thou didst hang on the Cross; when
Thou didst find none to comfort Thee but Thy beloved Mother, who stood by Thy Cross
to the last, and whom Thou didst commend to Thy disciple, saying: Woman, behold
thy son, and to the disciple: Behold thy Mother. I beseech Thee, O compassionate
Jesus, by that sword of anguish which then pierced her Heart, do Thou condole with me
and console me in all my tribulations. Amen.
SIXTH PRAYER
O Jesus, inexhaustible fountain of pity, remember now that bitterness which Thou didst
endure when, Thy strength being exhausted and Thy sacred Body dried up, Thou didst
feel that burning thirst, and hadst not one drop of water to cool Thy parched tongue, but
only vinegar upon hyssop; I beseech Thee that Thou wouldst extinguish in me the
thirst of carnal concupiscence and worldly delights. Amen.
SEVENTH PRAYER
O Jesus, mighty King, remember now that when Thou wast plunged into the bitter
waters of Thy Passion until they closed over Thy head, Thou wast forsaken not only
by men, but by Thy Father also, and didst cry out with a loud voice, saying: My God,
My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me? By this Thine anguish and dereliction, I
beseech Thee, forsake me not in my last agony. Amen.
EIGHTH PRAYER
O Jesus, strong Lion of the tribe of Juda, remember now the sorrow and the woe Thou
didst endure, when all the forces of Thy Heart and of Thy Flesh failed Thee utterly, and
Thou didst bow Thy Head and cry: It is consummated. By this Thine anguish and Thy woe,
have mercy on me at the end of my life, when my soul shall be troubled, and my spirit
disquieted within me. Amen.
NINTH PRAYER
O Jesus, splendor of the Father’s glory and figure of His substance, remember now that
earnest commendation with which Thou didst commend Thy Spirit to the Father, saying:
Father, into Thy hands I commend My Spirit! and when, Thy most sacred Body being
torn and Thy Heart broken, and all the bowels of Thy compassion laid bare for our
Redemption, Thou didst give up Thy Spirit: I beseech Thee, by all that love which moved
Thee, the Life of all that live, to submit to death, that Thou wouldst mortify and kill in my
soul whatever is displeasing to Thee. Amen.
TENTH PRAYER
O Jesus, true and fruitful Vine, remember now the lavish, the excessive profusion
wherewith Thou didst shed Thy Precious Blood, when on the Cross Thou didst tread
the winepress alone, and wast crushed a s a cluster of ripe grapes; when Thou didst
give us water and Blood from Thy pierced Side, so that not one drop remained in
Thy Heart. Then wast Thou hung up as a bundle of myrrh, and Thy tender Flesh grew
pale, and Thy moisture was all dried up within Thee, and the marrow of Thy bones
consumed. By this Thy most bitter Passion, and by the shedding of Thy most
Precious Blood, I beseech Thee, O most loving Jesus, wash my soul at the hour of
my death with the water which flowed from Thy Sacred Side, and adorn it with
comeliness in the Precious Blood of Thy sweetest heart, and render it acceptable
in Thy sight in the fragrant odor of Thy Divine love. Amen.
OBLATION
Accept, O compassionate Jesus, this my prayer with that exceeding love wherewith
Thou didst endure a bitter Death, and didst offer it , together with all the fruit of Thy
most sacred Humanity, to God the Father on the day of Thine Ascension; and by the
depth of those Wounds which scarred Thy Flesh and pierced Thy hands and feet
and Heart, I beseech Thee, raise me up, who am steeped and sunk in sin, and render
me well-pleasing to Thee in all things. Amen.
PRAYER OF ST. GERTRUDE TO THE SACRED HEART
This prayer is thought to be originally prayed by St. Gertrude and adapted
by St. Alphonse Liguori; he is considered the author because of its final formulation.
O Sacred Heart of Jesus, living and life giving fountain of eternal life,
infinite treasury of the Divinity, and glowing furnace of love, Thou art
my refuge and my sanctuary. O adorable and glorious Savior,
consume my heart with that burning fire that ever inflames Thy Heart.
Pour down on my souls those graces that flow from Thy love. Let my
heart be so united with Thine, that our wills may be one, and mine
may in all things be conformed to Thine. May Thy will be the rule
of both my desires and my actions.
ACT OF LOVE TO THE SACRED HEART
How great, O my Jesus, is the extent of Thine excessive charity! Thou hast prepared
for me, of Thy most precious Body and Blood, a divine banquet, where Thou
givest me Thyself without reserve. What hath urged Thee to this excess of love?
Nothing but Thine own most loving Heart.
O adorable Heart of my Jesus, furnace of Divine Love, receive my soul into the wound
of Thy most Sacred Passion, that in this school of charity I may learn to make
a return of love to that God Who hast given me such wonderful proofs of His love.
GUARDIAN ANGEL PRAYER
O MOST holy Angel of God, appointed by God to my Guardian, I give thee thanks for all the
benefits which thou hast ever bestowed on me in body and soul. I praise and glorify thee that thou
condescended to assist me with such patient fidelity, and to defend me against all the
assaults of my enemy. Blessed be the hour in which thou were assigned me for my Guardian,
my defender and my patron. In acknowledgment and return for all thy loving ministries to me, I
offer thee the infinitely precious and noble Heart of Jesus, and firmly purpose to obey thee
henceforward, and most faithfully to serve my God. Amen.
PRAYER TO FREE 1000 SOULS FROM PURGATORY: PROMISE PRAYER
A Prayer Which Would Release 1,000 Souls From Purgatory
Each Time It Is Said
Our Lord told St. Gertrude the Great that the following prayer would release 1,000
Souls from Purgatory each time it is said. The prayer was later extended to include
living sinners as well.
“ETERNAL FATHER, I OFFER THEE THE MOST PRECIOUS BLOOD OF THY DIVINE SON,
JESUS, 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.”
APPROVAL AND RECOMMENDATION: M. Cardinal Pahiarca at Lisbon, Portugal, March 4, 1936
THE TWO FLOWER PRAYERS OF ST. GERTRUDE
HAIL, White Lily, of the ever-peaceful and glorious Trinity!
Hail, Vermilion Rose, the delight of Heaven, of whom the King
of Heaven was born and by whose milk He was nourished!
Do thou feed our souls with the effusions of your divine influences.
Hail! Vivifying Gem of Divine Nobility!
Hail, Most Loving Jesus, Unfading
Flower of Human Dignity!
You are my Sovereign and only Good.
A MOST TENDER AND EFFICACIOUS OFFERING TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN
O Sweetest Jesus, I beseech Thee, by the love which caused Thee to take
flesh in the bosom of this most pure Virgin, that Thou wouldst supply for our
defects in the service and honor of this most benign Mother who is ever ready
to assist us, with maternal tenderness, in all our necessities. Offer to Thy
beloved Mother, O amiable Jesus, the superabundant beatitude of Thy sweetest
Heart. Show her Thy Divine predilection which chose her from all eternity,
above all creatures, to be Thy Mother, adorning her with every grace and virtue.
Remind her of all the tenderness which Thou didst manifest to her on earth,
when she carried Thee on her bosom and nourished Thee with her milk.
Recall to her Thy filial obedience to her in all things, and especially Thy care
at the hour of Thy death, when Thou didst forget Thine own anguish to solace
hers, and didst provide her with a faithful guardian. Remind her, also, of the
joys and glory of her Assumption, when Thou didst exalt her above all the choirs
of Angels and constitute her Queen of Heaven and earth. O good Jesus, make
Thy Mother propitious to us, that she may be our advocate and protectress
in life and in death. Amen.
THANKSGIVING FOR GRACES BESTOWED ON ST. GERTRUDE
To implore favors through her merits:
God revealed to St. Gertrude that those who should thank him for the graces bestowed upon her
would participate in her merits, and would obtain their petition provided it were for their eternal welfare.
O most sweet Lord Jesus Christ, I praise, extol and bless Thee, in union with that
Heavenly praise which the Divine Persons of the Most Holy trinity mutually render to
Each other, and which thence flows down upon Thy Sacred Humanity, upon
the Blessed Virgin Mary and upon all the Angels and Saints. And I give Thee
thanks for all the graces Thou didst lavish upon Thy beloved spouse, St. Gertrude.
I thank Thee especially for that ineffable love wherewith Thou didst pre-elect her
from all eternity, didst enrich her so highly, didst draw her so sweetly to Thyself by the
strongest bonds of love, didst unite her so blissfully to Thyself, dwell with such delight
in her heart, and crown her life with so blessed an end. I recall to Thee now, O most
compassionate Jesus, the promise Thou didst make to Thy beloved spouse, that
Thou wouldst most assuredly grant the prayers of all who come to Thee through her
merits and intercession, in all matters concerning their salvation. I beseech Thee, by
Thy most tender love, grant me the grace . . . [mention it] which I confidently expect. Amen.
PRAYER BEFORE WORK
O Lord Jesus Christ, in union with Thy most perfect actions I commend to Thee
this my work, to be directed according to Thy adorable will, for the salvation
of all mankind. Amen.
ACTS OF PRAISE IN HONOR THE MOST BLESSED TRINITY
I venerate and glorify Thee, O Most Blessed Trinity, in union with that ineffable glory
with which God the Father, in His omnipotence, honors the Son and the Holy Spirit forever.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it
was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
I magnify and bless Thee, O Most Blessed Trinity, in union with that most reverent glory with
which God the Son in His unsearchable wisdom, glorifies the Father and the Holy Spirit forever.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it
was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
I adore and extol Thee, O Most Blessed Trinity in union with that most adequate and
befitting glory with which the Holy Spirit, in His unsearchable goodness, extols the
Father and the Son forever.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it
was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
OFFERING OF OUR SAVIOR’S LIFE TO THE ETERNAL FATHER
O most loving Father, in atonement and satisfaction for all my sins, I offer Thee
the whole Passion of Thy most beloved Son, from the plaintive wail He uttered when
laid upon the straw in the manger, through all the helplessness of His infancy,
the privations of His boyhood, the adversities of His youth, the sufferings of His manhood,
until that hour when He bowed His head upon the Cross and with a loud cry gave up His Spirit.
And, in atonement and satisfaction for all my negligences, I offer Thee, O most loving
Father, the most holy life and conversation of Thy Son, most perfect in His every thought,
word, and action, from the hour when he came down from His lofty throne to the
Virgin’s womb, and thence came forth into our dreary wilderness, to the hour when He
presented to Thy fatherly regard the glory of His conquering flesh. Amen
