Purgatory Prayers


From the writings of

Sister Charles Borromeo, O.S.D.:


    Who is without an interest in Purgatory? Who has not, somewhere, a treasure buried in that dreary casket called a grave? And had they none, were they of the few who have never lost a friend, should their interest in Purgatory be any less strong and deep, since God’s friends are there and God desires them elsewhere? Reflect on what you do when you aid to release one of these prisoners of love. You free a soul from dire woe, from inexpressible suffering; you add a citizen to Heaven; you give joy to the Angels and Saints; you comfort and delight Jesus and His Mother Mary…

How Blessed Pius IX cured a bad memory.

The blessed Pontiff Pius IX appointed a holy and prudent religious, Bishop of a diocese. The priest alarmed at the responsibility put on him begged earnestly to be excused.
His protests were in vain. The Holy Father knew his merits.

Overcome with apprehension the humble religious solicited an audience with the Pope, who received him most graciously. Once more he pleaded earnestly to be excused but the Pope was immovable.
As a last recourse Padre Tomaso told the Holy Father that he had a very bad memory which would naturally prove to be a grave impediment in the high office put on him.
Blessed Pius IX answered with a smile; “Your diocese is very small in comparison with the Universal Church, which I carry on my shoulders. Your cares will be very light in comparison with mine.
I, too, suffered from a grave defect of memory but I promised to say a fervent prayer daily for the Holy Souls, who, in return, have obtained for me an excellent memory. Do you likewise, dear Father and you will have cause to rejoice.” From Purgatory Prayers page 51

The Holy Souls are great intercessors in time of need. For, by praying for them, they can and will be praying for us in our needs. The Holy Souls cannot pray for themselves, but for others and their prayers are not ignored. By praying to these special souls and relieving them of some of their suffering, you in turn will merit special grace from God. For blessed are the merciful for they shall obtain mercy.



My Jesus, by the sorrows Thou didst suffer in Thine agony in the Garden, in Thy scourging and crowning with thorns, in the way to Calvary, in Thy crucifixion and death, have mercy on the souls in purgatory, and especially on those that are most forsaken; do Thou deliver them from the dire torments they endure; call them and admit them to Thy most sweet embrace in paradise.
Our Father, Hail Mary, Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord; and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace. Amen.
Indulgence of 500 days. (596)

  1. Hello. What is the difference between “Purgatory Prayers” and the other book on Purgatory prayers?

    Thank you.

    • Hello Ms. Camps,
      The only difference between the two books is that one is in color, which cost more to produce. And the other book has the same illustrations but they are in greyscale, so that people can afford to buy more than one to promote the devotion that sadly has been forgotten for these Holy Souls. All text and prayers are identical in both versions.

  2. Please be kind enough to let me know how can I buy the “Purgatory Prayers” book of Archbishop John Farley (May 1904) apparently reprint by Nihil Obstat. Thank you. God bless
