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.

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

Day 3

My God! because Thou art infinite goodness, I love Thee above all things, and repent with my whole heart of my offenses against Thee. Grant me the grace of holy perseverance. Have compassion on me, and, at the same, on the holy souls suffering in Purgatory. And thou, 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 4

My God! because Thou art infinite goodness, I am sorry with my whole heart for having offended Thee. I promise to die rather than ever offend Thee more. Give me holy perseverance; 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.

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

Day 5

Woe to me, unhappy being, if 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 powerful intercession.

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.

Day 7

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.

Novena on Behalf of the Holy Souls of Purgatory

O Lord God almighty I pray Thee,
by the precious blood which Thy Divine Son Jesus
shed in the garden,
deliver the souls in Purgatory,
especially ……..
and that soul amongst them all
which is most destitute of spiritual aid;
and vouchsafe to bring it to Thy glory,
there to praise and bless Thee forever.

Amen+
Our Father, Hail Mary

Psalm cxxix
Out of the depths I have cried to Thee, O Lord
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 stand it?
For with Thee there is merciful forgiveness: and by reason of Thy law
I have waited for Thee O Lord.
My soul hath relied on His word: my soul hath hoped in the Lord.
From the morning watch, even unto night
Let Israel hope in the Lord.
For with the Lord there is mercy, and with Him plentiful redemption.
And He shall redeem Israel, from all his inquities.

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord
And let perpetual light shine upon them
May they rest in peace.

Amen+
Thank you.
Thanks for posting.
Thank you Cindy.  I have a shorter one but I like this one better.  There is also a daily prayer (a pilgrimage to Purgatory in the company of the Sacred Heart).  Do a search or ask me.  Also it is time for those who have made the Heroic Act of Charity to renew their pledge and for those who haven't, to start it.  If there is anything most pleasing to God, it is the devotion to the Holy Souls.  Each soul that is released from Purgatory and enters heaven gives glory to God - and to think that you had a hand in it.
You are very welcome.
God bless you!

Vincentius, I will definitely search for (a pilgrimage to Purgatory in the company of the Sacred Heart). 
Thank you and God bless you.
