Precious Blood Devotions
MOST LOVING JESUS
Most Loving Jesus, I humbly beseech Thee, that Thou Thyself wouldst offer to Thine Eternal Father in behalf of the Holy Souls in Purgatory, the Most Precious Blood which poured forth from the Sacred Wounds of Thine adorable Body, together with Thine agony and death. And do thou likewise, O sorrowful Virgin Mary, present unto Him. together with the dolorous Passion of thy dear Son, thine own sighs and tears, and all the sorrows thou didst suffer in His suffering, in order that, through the merits of the same, refreshment may be granted to the Souls now suffering in the fiery torments of Purgatory, so that, being delivered from that painful prison, they may be clothed with glory in Heaven, there to sing the mercies of God for ever and ever. Amen.
Absolve, O Lord, the Souls of all the faithful departed from every bond of sin, that with Thy gracious assistance they may deserve to escape the judgment of vengeance and enjoy the blessedness of everlasting light.
Eternal rest rant unto them, O Lord.
And let perpetual light shine upon them.
From the gates of Hell,
Deliver their Souls, O Lord.
May they rest in peace.
O Lord hear my prayer.
And let my cry come unto Thee.
Let us pray.
O God, the Creator and Redeemer of all the faithful; grant unto the Souls of Thy servants and handmaids the remission of all their sins: that through our devout supplications they may obtain the pardon they have always desired. Who livest and reignest world without end. Amen.
This once carried a Plenary under the usual conditions, if the prayers were said daily for an entire month. Granted by Pope Leo XIII, 1988. The Eternal Rest portion still has a Partial Indulgence.
