Praying the prayer of St. Gertrude for the souls in purgatory


"Eternal Father, I offer you the most precious blood of your divine son, Jesus, in union with the Masses said throughout the world today for all the holy souls in purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for those in my own home and within my family. Amen."

This beautiful prayer was shared with me by a parishioner who's sanctity and holy character would put even a holy priest to shame. It's a prayer which she repeats to herself every time she is aware that she is 'thinking empty thoughts' so as to continually keep the spiritual needs of others first in her mind and heart. We should all follow her example, both for our own edification and salvation, and for the myriad of souls released from purgatory through the graces won on their behalf.

Here it is again.

"Eternal Father, I offer you the most precious blood of your divine son, Jesus, in union with the Masses said throughout the world today for all the holy souls in purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for those in my own home and within my family. Amen."

Repeat often and whenever necessary.

Sisters of Life

Here is an excellent website for any and all interested in the pro-life cause. The Sisters of Life are a religious order than began in New York City under the authority of Cardinal Jon O'Connor (RIP) in the 1980's. Their traditional religious lifestyle and clear charism have led them to grow much faster than many other orders. As a result, these wonderful women are moving beyond the boundaries of NYC and have opened a convent in Toronto. Here is a link to a news account from LifesiteNews which explains in greater detail their history and mission in Toronto. The Sisters of Life count among their numbers a woman from our Parish here in Mattawa who is soon to take her final profession. This is one of the greatest blessings that we have received as a parish. Anytime a religious vocation comes forward from a parish community, many graces flow back to the local church. I can only pray that as the Sisters of Life establish their ministry in Canada that more and more women will join
