Prayer of St. Gertrude The Great For The Souls in Purgatory
Jesus Promised Saint Gertrude that each time this prayer is said devoutly, 1000 souls are
released from Purgatory
'Eternal Father, I offer to 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, and those in my own home
and within my family, Amen'
