Blessed Souls, I have prayed for thee; I entreat thee, who are so dear to God,
and who are secure of never losing Him, to pray for me a miserable sinner, who
is in danger of being damned, and of losing God forever. Amen.

Day 1

Jesus, my Savior I have so
often deserved to be cast into hell how great would be my suffering if I were
now cast away and obliged to think that I myself had caused my damnation. I
thank Thee for the patience with which Thou hast endured me. My God, I love Thee
above all things and I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee because Thou
art infinite goodness. I will rather die than offend Thee again. Grant me the
grace of perseverance. Have pity on me and at the same time on those blessed
souls suffering in Purgatory. Mary, Mother of God, come to their assistance with
thy powerful intercession.

Say one Our Father, one Hail Mary, and the Prayer to Our Suffering Savior for the Holy Souls in Purgatory .


Day 2 

Woe to me, unhappy being, so
many years have I already spent on earth and have earned naught but hell! I give
Thee thanks, O Lord, for granting me time even now to atone for my sins. My good
God, I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee. Send me Thy assistance, that
I may apply the time yet remaining to me for Thy love and service; have
compassion on me, and, at the same time, on the holy souls suffering in
Purgatory. O Mary, Mother of God, come to their assistance with thy powerful
intercession.

And thou, Mary, Mother of God, come to their assistance with thy powerful
intercession.

My God! because Thou art
infinite goodness, I am sorry with my whole heart for having offended Thee. I

have pity on me, and have pity on those holy souls that burn in the cleansing
fire and love Thee with all their hearts. O Mary, Mother of God, assist them by
thy powerful prayers.

Thou, O Lord, hadst cast me into hell; for from that dungeon of eternal pain
there is no deliverance. I love Thee above all things, O infinite God and I am
sincerely sorry for having offended Thee again. Grant me the grace of holy
perseverance. Have compassion on me, and, at the same time, on the holy souls
suffering in Purgatory. O Mary, Mother of God, come to their assistance with thy

Day 6

My Divine Redeemer, Thou didst
die for me on the Cross, and hast so often united Thyself with me in Holy
Communion, and I have repaid Thee only with ingratitude. Now, however, I love
Thee above all things, O supreme God; and I am more grieved at my offences
against Thee than at any other evil. I will rather die than offend Thee again.
Grant me the grace of holy perseverance. Have compassion on me, and, at the same
time, on the holy souls suffering in Purgatory. Mary, Mother of God, come to
their aid with thy powerful intercession.

God, Father of Mercy, satisfy
this their ardent desire! Send them Thy holy Angel to announce to them that
Thou, their Father, are now reconciled with them through the suffering and death
of Jesus, and that the moment of their deliverance has arrived.

Say one Our Father, one Hail Mary, and the Prayer to Our Suffering Savior for the Holy Souls in Purgatory .


Day 8 

Oh my God! I also am one of
these ungrateful beings, having received so much grace, and yet despised Thy
love and deserved to be cast by Thee into hell. But Thy infinite goodness has
spared me until now. Therefore, I now love Thee above all things, and I am
heartily sorry for having offended Thee. I will rather die than ever offend
Thee. Grant me the grace of holy perseverance. Have compassion on me and, at the
same time, on the holy souls suffering in Purgatory. Mary, Mother of God, come
to their aid with thy powerful intercession.

Say one Our Father,one Hail Mary, and the Prayer to Our Suffering Savior for the Holy Souls in Purgatory .


Day 9

My God! How was it possible
that I, for so many years, have borne tranquilly the separation from Thee and
Thy holy grace! O infinite Goodness, how long-suffering hast Thou shown Thyself
to me! Henceforth, I shall love Thee above all things. I am deeply sorry for
having offended Thee; I promise rather to die than to again offend Thee. Grant
me the grace of holy perseverance, and do not permit that I should ever again
fall into sin. Have compassion on the holy souls in Purgatory. I pray Thee,
moderate their sufferings; shorten the time of their misery; call them soon unto
Thee in heaven, that they may behold Thee face to face, and forever love Thee.
Mary, Mother of Mercy, come to their aid with thy powerful intercession, and
pray for us also who are still in danger of eternal damnation.
