My God! I recommend to Thee the souls of my relations,
my benefactors, my friends and my enemies,
and of those who are in Purgatory on my account.
I recommend to Thee the souls of evangelical labourers,
of Religious and priests,
and especially of those who had charge of my soul.
I recommend to Thee the souls of those
who were most devout to the passion of Our Lord,
to the Blessed Sacrament,
to the Blessed Virgin Mary,
the souls who are most abandoned,
those who suffer most,
and those who are nearest to the entrance into paradise.
PRAYER FOR THE DEPARTED LOVED ONES
Almighty God, Who by the love
which You have for men,
have willed to take our humanity,
to live a life of hard work,
to suffer a most cruel Passion,
and finally to die on the Cross,
I beseech You,
by the infinite merits purchased for us
with Your Precious Blood,
look mercifully on the suffering
which is endured by the holy souls in Purgatory.
Accept, O merciful God,
the prayers which I offer for them,
and call them to the glory of Heaven.
I recommend to You the souls of my relatives,
friends and benefactors,
and in a special manner
of those to whom I may have been an occasion of sin
by my bad example.
Most Holy Virgin,
Mother of Mercy,
Comforter of the afflicted,
intercede for those souls, that,
by your powerful intercession,
they may be admitted to enjoy that Kingdom
which is prepared for them.
A PRAYER FOR THE FAITHFUL DEPARTED
O God, the Creator and Redeemer of all the faithful,
grant to the souls of Thy servants
departed the remission of their sins, that,
through pious supplications,
they may obtain the pardon
which they have always desired.
Who livest and reignest with God the Father,
in the unity of the Holy Ghost,
world without end.
