AND SECOND PRAYERS FROM THE RACCOLTA
ALSO FOUND IN THE TRADITIONAL MISSALI ROMANO
THE THIRD PRAYER: CATHOLIC
O GOD, Who in the ranks
of the Apostolic Priesthood hast caused Thy servants to be invested
the Pontifical or Priestly dignity; grant, we beseech Thee, that may
may be joined unto the everlasting fellowship of the same Thy Priests.
Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
Incline Thine ear,
O Lord, unto our prayers wherein we humbly pray Thee to show Thy mercy
upon the soul of Thy servant [name the priest], whom Thou hast
to pass out of this world, that Thou wouldst place him in the region of
peace and light, and bid him be a partaker of Thy Saints. Through
Our Lord. Amen.
MY Jesus, by the sorrows
Thou didst suffer in Thine Agony in the Garden, in Thy Scourging and
with thorns, in the Way to Calvary, in Thy Crucifixion and Death,
have mercy on the souls of priests in Purgatory, especially those most
forgotten and who no one else to pray for them. I wish to remember all
those priests who ministered to me, the priests my heart have never
and for those that I no longer recall due to my frailty of memory.
Do Thou deliver them
from the dire torments they endure; call them and admit them to Thy
sweet embrace in Paradise.
Our Father, Hail Mary,
POPE ST. PIUS X AND
VEN. POPE PIUS XII, PRAY FOR US AND ESPECIALLY OUR PRIESTS!
REST GRANT UNTO THEM, O LORD, AND MAY PERPETUAL LIGHT SHINE UPON THEM;
MAY THEY REST IN PEACE. AMEN.
