Should the souls of our own beloved dead no longer be in need of our suffrages, they will be bestowed upon others, who are deserving of our mercy as well; thus, our prayer, our labor of love, will not be less salutary and meritorious, and, indeed, life is not too long to practice this genuine charity to the end.
Prayer: We beseech Thee, O Lord! grant us the grace to persevere in our charity towards the souls in Purgatory; deign to look with eyes of mercy upon these penitent souls; deliver them from their suffering, and open to them the portals of Heaven. Through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
Special Intercession: Pray for the souls who suffer for inconstancy in the service of God.
Eternal rest, grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them; may they rest in peace. Amen, (Three times)
Practice: Examine how you have kept your good resolutions, particularly in what manner you have performed your devotions and works of charity for the suffering souls.
Invocation: My Jesus, mercy!
