Novena for the Holy Souls in Purgatory: First Day
Join us in praying the Novena for the Holy Souls in Purgatory!

We know that the souls of most people who have died in friendship with God must be purified in Purgatory. The holy souls in Purgatory are in great need of our prayers. Scripture and Tradition tell us that the holy souls in Purgatory need our prayers, and that it is a holy work to pray for the souls of the dead who are suffering in Purgatory. The Church views the act of praying for the souls in Purgatory with such importance that she has included this work in the seventh spiritual work of mercy: “Praying for the living and the dead.” Let’s offer our prayers for the souls of those who are awaiting their eternal heavenly rest through this Novena for the Holy Souls in Purgatory!

Meditation/Reflection: Manifold are the sufferings which those blessed souls must endure, but the greatest of all is the reflection that their sins in life are the cause of their present torments. Prayer: O 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.” Followed by: Our Father, Hail Mary Prayer to our Suffering Savior for the Souls in Purgatory V.
